Young 'uns

As I often do on my way in to work, I drove by The Rez to check on the Geese living there and this is what I found...
 Goslings! The babies have arrived. I didn't think it would be long since I have only been seeing one hanging out on the water. Still I was a little surprised.
 They were all intersted in finding snacks in the grass...
...not paying any attention to me...
...but someone was.
 When I got to work, I found this little guy singing me a song. Or not. More than likely he was singing to one of those cute little ladies he was trying to woo.
Mr. Sparrow was sitting on a ledge to the right of the rounded part of the window on the far right. My desk is inside the 2nd window from the right, on the ground floor, just behind the air conditioning unit. The old unit was a lot shorter. When we got this new one, I discovered I was sitting in the obstructed view section!

Do you know what the obstructed view section is? A several years ago, my fella at the time and I went on a baseball vacation, seeing games in St. Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. We didn't have advance tickets, we merely hoped there would be seats available and there were. This was before the demise of all the old stadiums in these cities. In Detroit the scalpers were out in force offering obstructed views. We decided not to try them even though they were really cheap. What we discovered was, basically you watch the game on a TV bolted to the huge support beams that blocked your view of the field. We made a wise choice in avoiding them even though that scalper was pushing them hard.

Oh I love Springtime and all the sweet babies! If you know Linda at Prairie Flower Farm she loves babies too and shares so many. Last summer I came upon a mother and her goslings! I have a nice camera and got some great shots! I chuckle because my nephew in Kentucky said to be careful that mama would attack! Duh! I am older but child like mentally! I used my big lens. Hee Hee Ha Ha! I love seeing new life and was outside a bit ago, the dogs were needing a potty break. I was looking at my neglected rose bush. Oh the glorious green buds, made me smile. It pours over into the most glorious array of colorful bright pink rosebuds! I don't do a lot to it but it gives me great pleasure each Spring! Hugs to you today and always! Anne
