so, today it was all about the geese… and a few ducks… found the Latin name for them – branta – as I was doing some research

wrote about my mom’s drawing of a goose a while back…

early this morning I was out in the hot tub and watched hundreds of them flying overhead…

took my first walk since the fall to Assiniboine Park and wandered around the English and Leo Mol Gardens

lovely day although a bit windy, and I was very happy to be outside walking… the sidewalks were all clear and dry…as I was crossing the walking bridge by the Park I caught these geese along the riverbank… 

as I looked from the Boy with the Boot to the flag on the Pavilion, a few more were walking on the ice at the Riley Family Duck Pond

there was open water as well as ice, lol…

on the tour of the Gardens I could hear the geese honking as they flew over and talking to one another in the river…

before crossing the bridge to come home took this picture of a pair… one was guarding while the other was eating…

they are so majestic and beautiful… and their honking still makes me stop and look up, wherever I am… 

too bad about all the fertilizer they leave behind…
