It's a jungle out there

The last couple of days my backyard deck has been frequented by a pair of Canada geese.

They walk up the three steps and waddle over to my patio door.

They stare inside my house, hiss at my cats and wait for me to toss them food.

Soon they will make their nest near a pond in the back, and by Mother's Day I will be congratulating them on their fuzzy arrivals.

Then the family will depart for places unknown.

The deck will be far from empty.

The neighbor cat will make his rounds looking for his daily can of FancyFest, and the squirrels will be hoping for roasted peanuts.

Deer and raccoons will be spotted, too.

It really is a jungle in my backyard!
