Ducks On A Date


Saturday, I was in one of the flower beds, doing some planting and a little weeding (very little).  Now and then, I would hear a sort of clucking noise, but didn’t think anything of it.

I turned from the flowerbed to see this:

Three duck couples. And yes, they were this close to me.  They were so interested in what I was doing, they must have thought it meant something for them to eat.  After realizing that wasn’t the case , they decided to hit the road in search of food.

Having my garden hose nearby, the phrase “like a duck to water” crossed my mind.

 Yes, I did.

(Do you know how difficult it is to take pictures and spray a garden hose at the same time?)

But one of the girls seemed to enjoy the little shower. A bit of a show-off, don’t you think?

And then, after a shower , but no lunch,

They waddled across our yard and back to the river.
