A Walk to the River's Edge

I watched the geese play on the river from my kitchen window all morning while doing the housecleaning.  I finally gave in and prepared for the trek across the snow-covered, soggy, plowed field.  I took the camera, tripod and dogs hoping that I could get a shot or two taken before the dogs scared off all the geese.   To my surprise, the geese were perfectly content to let us join them.  I climbed down the bank and sat where the wind  was blocked out by hillside and thick brush and watched the geese leisurely swim by.

 Then, I decided to invite Jeff and Justin.

 Justin took the next three pictures, and don't anyone think they are better than mine :)

 And a final shot of Jasmine making sure she is noticed.

Still and Again

We still had snow left from the last storm, but Mother Nature saw fit to dump on us again.  Will I ever get the peas planted?

Snow Fight

 I don't know what passed by this way, but they both were VERY interested in the stump.

And, I must be missing something here, but I don't get it.  What could be so interesting you would be willing to bury your head in the snow?
