Here in the Upper Midwest, we are used to waiting for seasonal changes.
The daytime temperatures are on the rise, but the nights are still dipping below the freezing mark.
I don't have any flowers blooming here at the Lakehouse.
The local greenhouses aren't open until the end of the month.
Even though the geese are starting to couple up, this goose seems to still be searching for a mate.
Hopefully he will find one soon, because he's NOT in a very good mood!
I was looking around the gardens for some Grape Hyacinths, and this grumpy goose let me know he was in no mood for me to be getting any closer than 20 feet to him!
I went back to the porch, and finished cleaning it up, and getting it ready for the pots of perennials that grace the potting bench, and window boxes for the Spring, and Summer months.
So now we are waiting for the night time temps to catch up to the day time warmth.
The birds are still singing for mates.
The geese still honking for partners.
The frogs chirping for someone to get together with.
And the ducks quacking for other ducks.
It's a ZOO out there!!
No, he's watching the Robins hopping around on the grass just a few feet from his face.
It's like the confessional booth at church. He can talk to the bird, but he can't touch it.
Woody can plead all he wants, but the bird just does whatever he is supposed to be doing.
Head hanging low. Almost feeling ashamed, or a failure....Woody ends up slowly turning away from the sliding screen. Walking off to meditate, alone with his thoughts...
Seems like we are all waiting for something here at the Lakehouse.
Have a happy weekend!
