Ducks

Last summer we bought a couple of 2-day old ducks, Rocky and Sam. They were very cute.

Sadly one of them died in December from a car-related illness. Rocky was lonely all on his own so we got him a couple of girlfriends, Roxanne and Stella. Stella is a┬áMuscovy Duck, the others are Mallards. Rocky didn’t like Stella and preferred Roxanne – we think he didn’t recognise the white duck as a duck! They’re all friends now though.

With our field waterlogged I decided to dig a pond. All I did was dig a big hole and it naturally filled with water. They’ve taken to it like, ahem, ducks to water. It’s lovely to see them splashing about in there. By the way, I’ve not finished making the pond yet.

Wow – idyllic stuff. You are learning so many new skills – pond-making! Bet you’re really missing that office job on days like these?

Also – that pic of Soren and the duck is a beaut!

Pond-making makes it sound far more involved than it is; I did literally just dig a hole :-/
I love that picture of Soren and the duck. Thank goodness for digital cameras and the ability to take 300 pictures!
