We take care of the land...it takes care of us.

We're just a couple of country dwellers......

that love nature, hunting, fishing, gardening, campfires, crafting, cooking, canning, laughter and living!!

Ya just never know what I'll blog about next...

So visit us often!

Goose Overload


It's a sight you just never tire of...





unlike the barrage
of fancy, new air-pollutin'-land-eatin'
green machines in the neighborhood....






I prefer to see what used to be...




 
and what the farmers used to see...
  



the farmers of my Grand Father's time
probably gathered at the elevator and 
talked about the weather and the future
and how much seed to plant
 and how much feed to buy...




the subject matter probably
 hasn't changed
much...

 


as long as there will be land,
there will be a farmer to
till, and sow, and reap....
 (thank goodness for that)



and hopefully their farming practices
will not endanger the natural 
scheme of things...
 

 
 
 I want to see my grand children's 
future as "rock" solid,
don't you?

The old farmsteads and wooden barns
will be long gone...
but, with any luck, there will
still be massive flocks of geese to see

that's a gift we need to preserve
and share for future generations. 

Have a great day
(keep it natural)

Wow! That's a lot of geese! We don't see them in numbers like that. Beautiful photos! These remind me of my grandparents old farm in Michigan.

Goose overload got a smile from me! I liked the picture of the group at the town hardware store discussing the "fly over" too!

Your geese are stunning! We don't see any white geese here in Ohio. That would be such a thrill. Glad the geese are ushering in spring for you all. Happy April!
