OK Winter is officially over and I am declaring Spring.  I have been absent from blogging for some time and after chatting to Zoe (Pennyblossom) who told me it was time I got back into letting her know what I was up to I decided that I would set too and start blogging again.  So Zoe this post is for you.

My neighbor has a small pond in his garden, it cannot be more than 4ft across by 7 foot long and yesterday I could not believe my eyes there sitting on top of the water paddling away were two ducks, Mr & Mrs..... 

 This morning at 7am they were there again.  Goodness knows where they have come from but it is so funny to see them rootling around in the pond.  Mind you I don't think my neighbor is quite as happy as I am to see them as they are making an awful mess of his garden.

I have to say it is so funny to see her waddling along with him following behind her and to cap it all  this evening I saw them walking along the main road and she had  another drake in tow.  Yes it is definitely Spring.

  4. Welcome back Debs ..... I know how you feel about coming out of hibernation! Mr & Mrs Quack look lovely .... my lot wanted to know if we could have some to add to the menagerie .... mmmmm I'll have to think about that one. Thanks to Zoe for encouraging you and will you be at Buckingham? xx

    1. Hi there

      Yes I will be at Buckingham, only trouble is we have double booked that day - our grandaughter is in a dance show at the Derngate in Northampton so have to leave early to get to that, so am going to share a stall with sis.


I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings and for your comments they are much appreciated.
