My first goose egg


First goose egg of 2017

My first goose egg of 2017 in a little basket made of grasses and stems.


It was imminent – typically geese start to lay at this time of year – and I had noticed mine resting a lot, and making the tell-tale scraped nest shapes.

Each year the first egg brings such wholesome excitement, one of nature’s reassuring cycles and waited-for seasonal markers.   The gathering of it brings joy.

Despite a storm blowing sleet sideways at me, my day is made happy.
