What a difference a day makes!

mom and babies

The last two days were filled with torrential rains playing havoc with people’s property and lives, but today the sun came out and made all the difference.

Since we’d been cooped up indoors for the last two days, pretty boy and I got up early and went for a stroll in the sunshine. Our resident geese were happy to be enjoying the sunshine too. And what a surprise for pretty boy and I to discover four little newly born goslings following mama goose!

3 babies

Can you believe I didn’t have my camera with me?

1 baby 1

Can you believe I ran three blocks home to get it?

ducks in a row

After two days of record breaking storms

causing devastating loss of property and lives,

it’s so comforting to see new precious life.

1 baby

After every storm the sun will smile;

for every problem there is a solution,

and the soul's indefeasible duty is to be of good cheer.

GREAT photos of those babies. The geese around these parts are not that accommodating in allowing their families to be photographed. Luv those little fuzzy babies.. CUTE!

Wishing you luck in the flag giveaway!

How precious !
I hope you are drying out, as are we. It's been a heck of a mess, but we were so fortunate compared to hundreds of others less fortunate.
Your pictures say it all !

Oh I hate that, when I forget my camera. I even learned to keep extra batteries as I have been out and had mine run down. You have some shots worth going back to get it. Great post.
