~ You Just Never Know ~

Hi everyone, another gorgeous day in our neck of the woods. It's just way to pretty to be inside. You know me later today I'll be enjoying the front porch and all the amenities it provides. Wish all of you could join me.

Around here you never know who's going to come for a visit. For the past almost 15 years we've watched a pair of geese each Spring land on the lake to stick around for the summer. I would like to think this is the same pair each year, except for tagging them there's no way of knowing. We've seen the nest full of eggs on the island only to be washed away from the hard rains and the lake flooding over the island. This is the first year Mom and Pop has brought them this close to the house. I hurriedly grabbed my camera this a.m. to capture these shots through the kitchen window, so please excuse the less than perfect quality of the pictures.

Cute little squirts!

Pop hangs back to keep a close eye on the surroundings, and the wee one lagging behind.

I'm not sure where they wandered off to, they were certainly on a mission. Hopefully next time they come for a visit I can get outside to get some better shots. You'll have to stay tuned to see if that happens. :-))

Thanks for stopping in to say hello. Your sweet comments always touch our hearts. It is because of you I do what I do... Until next time....Pin It

Good Morning Lynne Sweetie...
Oh how delightful these scene is. I have never seen the babies with the Momma and Dad before. I cannot thank you enough for the share.

They are so beautiful strutting their family across the lawn. I love it. Aren't they just the fuzziest little things ever?

Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful morning. I am just tickled pink.

Have a gorgeous day sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Lynne, that is so sweet!! I love seeing the families together. When we lived in Portland, there were some pretty busy streets where all traffic would stop for the Mama and her ducklings to cross 6 lanes of traffic. :)

I hope they hang around so you can enjoy them even more.

Have a great day!

What special friends you have and to be able to get a picture of them is great. Hope they return for more pictures. Also I use Google Chrome and have no trouble replying.
