Just over a month ago our goose, Duchess, began sitting on a clutch of eggs. Yesterday, on the First Saturday of the month, her eggs hatched. The last of the little goslings to hatch was exiting its shell as these photos were taken. Of the seventeen eggs that she sat on Duchess hatched thirteen goslings. One of these died, and the remaining unhatched eggs were unfertilized.

This morning, the whole family was out to enjoy the sunshine!

Thank you Blessed Lady, Mary, for this wonderful First Saturday blessing!
