I visited Holden Arboretum this morning. To the dismay of the Canada geese flying overhead, there was no water for them to land in. They were complaining with loud honks of consternation as they searched for some open water. Some eventually tried ice skating (goose style), but they obviously weren’t happy about it. The next few pictures tell the story.
It wasn’t easy walking for humans either. At one point I stepped on a patch of ice and almost crashed in a heap! The geese are a lot more graceful than I am!
Thanks for stopping by my corner of Ohio today.
Come back in a few days to see if winter has lost its grip.

That top photo is gorgeous. I’ve read that ducks are actually starving to death due to the frozen great lakes. Here’s a report about that from Chicago: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2014/03/12/ducks-dying-from-starvation-as-lake-ice-cuts-them-off-from-food-source/
And they sounded quite disgruntled too. Warmer weather can’t come soon enough…for them or for me. Thanks for your comment.
The photos are beautiful! I love the top one in particular. Poor geese… they look quite disgruntled.
