The gardens are gorgeous! Have you ever seen any actual Meadowlarks there? A Canada Goose really attacked you once? They can get fierce, running at you with their necks down. Is that a little bridge...so sweet! Also your first photo of the reflection is awesome!!!
Hi Ginnie, no I have never actually seen any Meadowlarks there, yet. When I was sitting in a favorite spot, unbeknowns to me there was a pair of geese making a nest out of sight. No eggs but they were territorial. The mail gave me several warnings by making a lot of noise and even pecking at my feet as I sat there. Then when I moved to the other side it wasn't far enough as he started coming towards me. Not an actual attack because I preempted it. I moved again! :)
Just reread your comment. Yes that is a little bridge. It can get ver popular with photographers.
Denise, your photos are beautiful! The video is fantastic, I love the images and enjoyed hearing you narrate! And you are smart to not get too close to the Canada geese. It was the most humid and hot here in Montreal today that it has been since the summer started. Thankfully, though, the humidity and high heat is supposed to break and the temperatures will drop...much to my delight. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely tour, Denise! And so nice to see so many Canada geese!
Thank you Linda, so glad you enjoyed everything in my post. I hope you are enjoying a less humid today today :)
You do sound tired. I hope you slept well later.The birds who visit us are incontinent, demanding and often vandals. And welcome So I do understand why the package(s) didn't alter your feelings for the Canada Geese.
Hi EC, there's an old Noel Coward song, something about only Mad Dogs and Englishmen (or in this case woman) go out in the noon day sun! It was actually evening but it was still very hot and humid. We had also gotten up at 3.00 a.m. that morning to take our friend Bill to the airport.
Nice pics. So green :)
Thank you DA :)
Yep I love them to. Hope you and Greg are all recovered XXX Don
Thank you Don, as long as I don't go out in this humidity all is well. I haven't changed much in 41 years of US summers, and am a true weathervane for muggy weather, so Gregg says, lol :) XXX Denise
Hello, Denise! I enjoyed the video and your photos from the gardens. It is a lovely place, I like the view of the pond and gazebo. Pretty flowers. Happy Friday, enjoy your day and weekend!
Thank you Eileen and the same to you :)
I would happily walk around there with you camera in hand, it looks a lovely spot. Have a wonderful weekend Diane
I would welcome your company Diane :) Wishing you a wonderful weekend also.
I love those blue chairs but if I sat in one of them I'd never be able to get up without help. You do sound like you're out of breath and the video but I find when I talk in a video I always sound weird maybe it's the sound of her own voice we don't understand
You and me both Sandra. As for the video, what I should have done is wait a few minutes after walking up that long, steep hill. I'll remember next time.
Very pleasant, very serene.
It is indeed :)
Yes, they can be a mess, but they're real characters. A beautiful place!
I agree about them being real characters, and I enjoy their feistiness.
Such a peaceful, lovely place! Enjoyed the photos and the video!
Thank you Marie, that makes me very happy :)
Thank you Christine:)
Very nice, beautiful views here.
Thank you Jimmy :)
Canada Geese deserve our respect and admiration. They are tough, dedicated parents and survivors. And in urban settings they are merely taking advantage of the smorgasbord of food we have laid out for them.
It is nice to hear you say that David, I have always enjoyed and admired them.
Our Canada Geese are wicked poopers!!! Sorry!!!
Yes, I know Jenn and sorry, your comment gave me a chuckle. Thank you ;)
