I have just seen geese fly! Big deal, you may say, but, hey, I am in a city, a concrete jungle. We don't even see birds very often, let alone geese. We are grateful for this little corner of the city where we could enjoy an intimate moment with nature. I am here at the Botanic Gardens, a heritage site, with manicured lawns and thoughtfully landscaped gardens. The geese swooped overhead and descended on the grass at the far end of the pond. There's a guinea fowl waddling near me. Here, in the tranquility of the gardens, birds fly unmolested.
