The Geese are Back!

A sure sign of spring. Gorgeous photography by Graham Owen

Oh yes!!!! It might still be below zero, massive icicles still pose a real threat from above and the frigid wind is still trying to rip the skin off my face. But none of that matters today because today I heard honking! Those brave, beautiful Canada geese flew back into Souris and landed in my heart. Their intoxicatingly  guttural honks sent shivers dancing up my spine and tickled the corners of my mouth into a foolish grin. Oh yes, spring is coming- so in case you weren’t sure whether you’d worn out your welcome Winter, “HONK! Now get lost!”

Sparrows take a mud bath in the puddle out front.
