The white geese who were always very curious and bossy desired to know what Cliffrose was talking about. Part of the group consisting of Jacaranda, Snowbell, and Tulip marched to Cliffrose to ask her. Cliffrose was scared of the three white geese as they were not on very good terms with the older group.
So off when Cliffrose leaving the three white geese indignant at her flight. They decided to send the two youngest of the group, Rosewood and Hibiscus. Once again when Cliffrose was approached she was scared and she fled. The two geese although being rather small were still a force to be reckoned with and that force was one that Cliffrose was not going to face alone.
The white geese then sent Rowan who had been speaking with Cliffrose to speak with her about the matter. Cliffrose did not particularly feel in the mood to talk with Rowan that day especially not after being scared by the white geese and two little gray geese so off she went but not because she was scared this time.
Rowan returned frustrated and told the white geese that there was no point in trying to find out what news Cliffrose had. The white geese were not happy with Rowan's frustration and rather than giving up they sent Buckeye next.
Cliffrose was once again scared because she did not know Buckeye. Buckeye did not show any signs of aggression but despite this, Cliffrose once again left.
At last the white geese becoming frustrated sent at random Willow Crenshaw to speak with Cliffrose. Cliffrose did not find Willow Crenshaw to be a scary sort because of her size and her personality. She was for some reason in the mood to hear what she had to say.
Cliffrose inquired about her business and Willow Crenshaw told her that the geese of her group wanted to know what news was being spread among the older group. Cliffrose had not realized that this was what the white geese had wanted. Cliffrose was always excited to repeat news that she had acquired and therefore repeated it.
She told Willow Crenshaw that the human intended to bring home two white goslings in June. Willow Crenshaw did not understand this and wished for more information. She asked where the two white goslings were coming from and why they were being brought home. Cliffrose said she did not know why they were being brought or where exactly they were coming from. In the past the human would bring young geese that were not related into the flock and as to where they had come from Cliffrose did not know.
Some of the wiser geese chanced to know because they had not hatched on that farm because there had been no other geese present before them to hatch them. Neither of the two geese knew that those geese would have some knowledge of how the human acquired it so for a long time they discussed the matter trying to find out how it could have happened.
Eventually Redbud who overheard the discussion came and told them that he and Cypress and Hickory had not come from the farm because they were part of the first group to ever live there. He also told them that Juniper had also not come from the farm. She had been brought from another land by one of those strange vehicles that Redbud liked to chase to a place where they left that said Juniper and her friend Maple and then the human picked them up and brought them home. Redbud stated that he did not know if the white geese were coming from another land or if the human would simply go somewhere full of strange stuff and baby birds and simply get a box and bring them out and away to home.
The two geese thanked Redbud for the information and thus ending the conversation Willow Crenshaw went back to her flock while Cliffrose and Redbud walked off together discussing what weeds they should eat.

my name is Emily
I have twenty-eight geese. I hatch a bunch of goslings because I want a lot of people to have geese. I do not see them everywhere but I want to! The goslings are the sweetest baby birds I know! The adult males are proud and can be cranky but have their sweet moments while the females are shy and sweet all at the same time.
