And the answer is Garden Pea Vine!
First come the beautiful blooms
and then fresh garden peas :)
The previous images, and more,
can be found in a new gallery

First they flew madly ‘at’ me … taking flight almost as soon as I got out of my car
Then they gave me ‘the stare’… as only Canada Geese can do.
When I couldn’t respond with something for them to eat … they turned on their heels and marched back across the frozen pond to the opening in the ice, that they had created.
Here is a one-legged sentry, protecting the family … … … while I go to the store to get wild-bird seed :)
(He’s not really one-legged, he’s just standing on one leg.)
