A Goose, a Duck, and My Mood

29 Apr

A goose for Wild Bird Wednesday.

Canada Goose

A duck for Rubbish Tuesday.  This is a planter that either belonged to my grandfather or my uncle.  In either case, it’s old.

Finally, my mood for Wordless Wednesday.

    We have Mr. and Mrs. Goose nesting at The Rez here in town. I go by frequently to check on them. Love the duck planter. You can tell it is an antique. Nice to have memory pieces. Now for the mood. I’m guessing stormy? Wonderful shot of the dark gloom with a whisper of light showing through the clouds.

      This is just a lone goose that was spending the night in my pasture bed and breakfast. Love this time of year for my visitors.

      I love old family heirlooms. I’ll probably try to share more on Tuesdays.

      It’s been a dark and stormy spring here, and I’m not just talking the weather.

    aww – sorry for the scowl at the end. 🙂 loved the old planter and the sweet goose.

    • Teresa April 29, 2014 at 5:38 pm #

      Thanks. I’m sure the scowl will change pretty soon. 🙂

    Great shot of the goose, sorry his is alone.. Your duck planter is cute. On your sky shot, it looks like the bright opening spot is shaped like a heart, or is it my eyes. Have a happy week!

      Maybe this is the gander who’s mate is nesting on the bale of hay down the road. I didn’t notice it, but it really does have a heart shape to it!

        There’s a little bit of light shining through the clouds – hope that’s a good sign – great duck planter, it’s so lovely to have these treasures isn’t it?

      • Teresa April 30, 2014 at 7:34 am #

        That is certainly a good thing! I do love all the family treasures I’m lucky enough to be the caretaker for.

    Fab pics I quite like the planter too 😉

    Have a Quacktastic week 😉

    • Teresa April 29, 2014 at 6:33 pm #

      Thanks! Hope you have an awesome week too.

    I like that planter.

    • Teresa April 29, 2014 at 6:34 pm #

      I do too. We have another almost exactly like it, which is why I’m not sure which one this is.

    Do I see a little bit of sun showing through those clouds?!

    • Teresa April 29, 2014 at 8:52 pm #

      A little. This was on the back side of the storm.

  7. Rajesh April 29, 2014 at 10:04 pm #

    Wonderful images.

  8. pattisj April 29, 2014 at 11:29 pm #

    That is a cool duck planter. I look forward to seeing more of your treasures. Praying the dark mood passes quickly.

    • Teresa April 30, 2014 at 7:33 am #

      I’m sure sunny skies will also help my mood. Thanks so much.

    Hi Theresa yes perhaps the goose has a nest close up, you might even find it and perhaps the babies will also come for B&B! Hope the dark mood lifts.

    • Teresa April 30, 2014 at 7:33 am #

      The geese tend not to nest in my pasture because there’s too much going on back there with me and all my critters.

  10. Gattina April 30, 2014 at 4:48 am #

    I like the little duck, but concerning your mood, it’s probably better to avoid you today, lol !

    • Teresa April 30, 2014 at 7:34 am #

      It might be best to give me my space. 🙂

    Have been out of commission for a month so am wondering how all your babies are doing. Love to see your goats. I have been in a funk now for a month…family illness will do it to me every time. Gotta pull myself up by my overall straps and sot worrying and start smelling the roses. You always bring a smile to my face. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

    • Teresa April 30, 2014 at 7:35 am #

      Sorry to hear you’ve been having a difficult stretch. It sounds so easy to just say we have to pull ourselves up or get over it, but it’s so much harder to accomplish. Hope things go well for you.

    OMGoodness, Theresa….I just noticed that the link is to my old Buttons for Baga blog which I combined earlier with my Climbing one. I wonder how I change that so it does not reappear with other comments I make on other blogs….UGH! Am changing it here, NOW. This Google and the internet can sometimes be the bane of my existence …hahaha.

    • Teresa April 30, 2014 at 7:36 am #

      I know. I wish all the different formats would just get along with each other.

  13. EG CameraGirl April 30, 2014 at 6:12 am #

    Your old planter is wonderful, especially since it’s a family heirloom!

    • Teresa April 30, 2014 at 7:36 am #

      Thanks. I do like it. Technically, it is my son’s now, but I still have the privilege of caring for it.

  14. Jeanne April 30, 2014 at 2:40 pm #

    I’ve kept thinking about that last picture! It seems to me like the light at the end of the tunnel!! I, too, love old family heirlooms – have a few of my own, but not one like that duck planter, which is quite neat! Hope you’re having a great day!

    • Teresa April 30, 2014 at 5:20 pm #

      I’m ready to find that light!

  15. Leovi May 1, 2014 at 5:58 am #

    Good photos, I love the gray sky through the bare trees!

      Thanks. It’s been a pretty dreary spring so far.
