My husband and I had a bit of time yesterday morning, and it was such a beautiful day, so we decided to go to Rosehill Cemetery in Chicago. This is a huge cemetery (350 acres), and we knew we wouldn’t possibly be able to see everything, but we figured we’d do a bit of looking, just to get a taste.
I think goslings are so cute. When they’re tiny little balls of fluff, they’re adorable, but even when they reach “teenager” status, they’re still pretty cute. So, of course, I was taking a bunch of photos, and the geese were just doing their thing… until a few of the goslings decided to come out of the water.
Let me tell you, these guys move pretty quickly. They apparently believed I had some goose treats in my pocket (or were hopeful, anyway), and so they made a beeline towards me. Which was very cute ….. but then, as I realized they were quite earnest, a bit daunting. But I moved away and they started rooting around in the grass, instead.
It was fun to see them, as well as the small turtles in the pond (I’ve got a photo of them which I’ll post at some point). There were also the usual robins. and we saw 2 crows — and also, a large hawk, who flew overhead and circled. The hawk treated us to a few screams, which was pretty cool, too.
I’ll go back to regular grave marker posts, but I wanted to share a little something different today. 🙂
