Wood Ducks and Geese

It must be Spring.  Our goose has picked her spot and laid her eggs.  She spent the day arranging the nest.  The male has all ready started chasing other geese out of the creek.

I was very surprised to see wood ducks out in the middle of the afternoon.  I took several pictures from inside.  I went out as quietly as possible and I was able to take a couple more before they saw me and flew off.  There are a few wood duck houses in the neighborhood, but we don’t know if they’ve picked one yet.  Last year, they had at least ten babies in the one in the creek by the island.

 I sat out on the deck for a few hours this afternoon and knit.  I’m back to working on the handbag.  It’s fun and colorful.  Maybe I’ll have a picture tomorrow.  I also finished the fourth nightshirt.

    Is that snow? Is it not spring? Shouldn’t your grass be green and the trees budding?
