A week Overdue

Maths is not my strong point, but I was convinced our goslings were due last Monday....luckily I decided I could be wrong and let the goose sit a bit longer.  Last night she was reluctant to leave her nest and when this morning she didn't come out for breakfast I knew something had happened.

Mum and Dad were both being very protective but you should be able to see just a little bit of yellow in these pictures:


or maybe not - the little gosling is hiding under mum's beak.  I think another may be on it's way.

Our two females laid load of eggs early in spring, but kept trying to nest in the hedge so one by one they all got eaten by night creatures.  As a last bid our grey goose lay two eggs in the hut, so these were safe.

Also in the spring we held the primitive stitchery workshop and yesterday Jane brought over the cushion she made from it

There was a problem with the summer primitive stitchery (no need to go into details) so Julie made the winter one instead when she came out a few weeks ago

Funny to look at that when it's sweltering here at the moment.

Finally - hasn't it been a good year for the roses?  My bushes are so heavy with flowers they are all leaning over


  1. Yes the roses are lovely and the heat has wafted the perfume of honeysuckle across the garden.

  2. Lovely roses and how exciting about the goslings. I can just see it in the photo.
