Field of dreams

Good news! I just posted the Irish Soda Bread recipe at I Live on a Farm dot com. Hope you have some this weekend! Just a few minutes ago I was out with Blu having one of our morning walks about the farm, when I heard the loud voices of Canadian geese speak up over by the corn behind our willow tree. I took Blu back in the house and grabbed my camera, with a good zoom lens on it, and went back out to see if I could grab some shots of the geese. It was interesting to observe...

We have Canadian geese in our area year round. In late winter, however, they start arriving from other areas and the population becomes enormous ... from what I have heard. That time is upon us, and the geese are beginning to fill our skies each evening and early morning. Last week one evening my husband told me a gaggle had arrived in our cornfield.
