It had rained all night and more rain was forecast, so we seriously considered calling off the zoo work day. The other volunteers wouldn't mind!
Are we glad we didn't miss the day.
We walked into the garden with our pole pruners just as the giraffe's keeper came by to collect some mulberry.
"What luck! We're pruning it today! Where should we put the branches for you?"
As it turned out we got to put it right into the giraffe's mouth.
Enjoy the fun!

Oh -- and we also got a lot of gardening done, from rescuing the Helen's flowers from rot to measuring a hilly garden for new design, to restraining roses and removing shade perennials from places gone sunny with tree loss!
