Geese arriving at fireflys farm

They come to enjoy the cold, crisp water of our river, to feast on wheat and corn in our fields, to commune with nature in company with their loved ones.

The annual rendezvous has begun. Excited chattering late night and early morning, energetic in-flight organizational meetings occur overhead throughout the day. Huge impromptu breakfast, lunch, and dinner meetings are held in various locations nearby … changing every day for reasons of security.

Yes, the Canadians are among us and above us.

Welcome friends as always.

Gotta love the geese.

I will write more tomorrow (Thursday) or Friday.

  1. I love to hear the honking of the geese as they pass overhead on their way to Minnesota or Canada … or possibly to Gray’s Lake only one mile north of my house! Once again, there is hope in the air. Hope and the promise that spring is near, very near. Your words paint pictures and your pictures speak volumes as always, Firefly …

  2. I’ve always wanted to see migrating geese. Your pictures are lovely.

  3. You have such a talent for taking pictures, they are beautiful.

  4. thank you for your pictures
    i live on the central west coast
    of Florida-in the flight path
    of birds and butterflies and robins

    most of the birds have left but the
    egrets are making a racket up
    in the trees and the snow birds also

    hope my knitting arrived

  5. Yes, birds are coming back! Today I saw 4 Robins and a bat! This is quite exciting, as I know that spring is coming fast – ragardless of the 6 inches of snow we’re supposed to get tonight!

  6. Your photos are terrific! Thanks for sharing your words and these heralds of spring.

  7. Wonderful! I love to see and hear the geese. My roses and shrubs are getting buds too. They are so anxious for spring so they can grow and flourish! I welcome them!

  8. Wonderful pictures! I particularly love the pic with the willow and other shrubs with their colourful bark. Natures landscaping! We try to imitate!
