SELF-HELP IN 2021 #3

I don’t appear to be helping myself much….

A couple of days ago I went for a good long walk through Bewdley, across the fields to Ribbesford and then back along the river home. It was a bit blowy but great to get some fresh air. Passing the Old Grammar School I had to take a picture of some flowers arranged by the Guides for Bewdley in Bloom.

I wonder if there is still a flower arranging badge? There was in my day but I could never aspire to itπŸ˜„

We have goslings on the river as well. Very cute but the parents are very protective so no chance of getting a close-up let alone a selfie with them 😏

Strange how no one is sitting here???

Now I walked into town today to get some bread and got soaked, it was hammering down with rain. The geese and goslings were on the same patch of grass. Well all except one little gosling. Bless him he was trying to work his way up the steps but they were much bigger than him. His mum was having a right go! But for my healthy respect of the adult geese I would have gone down and given the poor guy a hand. Happily on my way back he was with the rest of the family tearing up grass with his beak 😊

Woolly wishes,

Jane β™‘β™‘β™‘

  1. Awww they are so cute!! When I was a kid, my grandparents would often take me to the duckpond where they lived (back in the days when people were feeding the ducks … I know … πŸ˜‰ ) I really love ducks, and geese are beautiful, but yeah, they CAN get nasty! πŸ˜‰

  2. I wonder if there is a flower arranging badge – I bet there isn’t! I wasn’t a Girl Guide for long (got into boys and my Mum was a Leader so it never felt like a night away from home!) but I was a Brownie and loved doing the badges. You’d have to go to someone’s house to be assessed which was a bit of an adventure/scary. Now I think it’s all assessed within the Brownie Leader Group itself. As for your Geese in the photo – yes, best stay clear of Mum and Gosling – some people have guard geese not guard dogs! You might have found yourself in trouble!

    1. Oh how funny my mum was a Brown Owl (not literally obviouslyπŸ˜‚) Back in the early 70s being in the Guides was my social life πŸ™„ Sadly none of the Boy Scouts were that interesting πŸ˜„


  3. That looks like a lovely walk. We had a very big storm here, car alarms going off with the thunder and torrential rain. What a lovely arrangement of chrysanthemums – well done guides. I only managed a few weeks with the guides, the arguements were unbearable. We were at a local reserve yesterday with ducklings and goslings galore. It was a delight.

    1. I do love this time of year with all of the baby birds and animals. And talking about the Guides, girls can be awful! I was probably one of the horrible ones πŸ€”
