We have two goose 'couples' that return every year to have their children...they hatch their eggs (anywhere between 1-4), then tend to their goslings all summer is really inspiring and we look forward to seeing them. One of the families arrived on May 2. and it really made our souls happy (that's how you know that you are getting love birds and trees) - it means that Spring is really here. I can't wait to see how many babies they will have this year.

What makes the geese so inspiring is the way that they are devoted to one another and to their little families. The 'children' are always positioned in between the mom and the dad..and the parent's truly do stand guard over these goslings all summer, right up to the point that they are really all the same size, and it's time to fly south. It's fun to see this divine like quality in nature.

Awww....this is such a nice commentary! You're so fortunate to live in such a lovely area. It would be so much fun to sit and watch those babies...they're just so adorable.
