Of all the strange things to see out my front window this morning as I sat sewing, this is what I found:
Two Canadian geese wandering around in my front yard, enjoying what I am sure is a plethora of bugs in my new spring grass. Perhaps they stopped on the flyover for a snack before continuing north. Or perhaps they are a pair that live around here near the river. There seems to be quite a few year round residents, especially around the power plant where I worked.
In either case, this pair was headed toward the busy road that borders my property and I was worried about them. I have seen geese in the streets near the greenway beside Chicamauga Creek stopping traffic and it always scares me that a driver won't see them. So I grabbed my camera and my shoes and went out to shoo them back up the hill.
Here they are crossing my driveway and heading up the side street:
If they just keep going that direction they will be safe.
