The Duck Story


My life is extremely dull so I don’t have anything to blog about and I sometimes wonder why I even do it. So with that said I will blog about the most exciting thing in my life at the moment. This is a picture of my front yard. These two ducks come and visit me every morning. I think they come from Randall park which is a couple miles away as the duck flies. They must wing it over here. I never see them in anybody’s yard, but mine. I thought it was because my yard is so full of weeds and wild morning glory and dandelions. It has now been sprayed and the weeds are gone, but the ducks are still coming. They peck around in the grass for awhile and then they waddle across the street to the sidewalk and waddle up the sidewalk, and if one stops to peck at something the other one stops and waits for him. Just like a cute little couple. They cross the intersection and continue on up the sidewalk.
When they get out of sight I go back to counting the flowers in the wallpaper.

I love nature. Just the other day I saw a mama duck and her fluffy babies walking across the road. When I walk the dog before work early of a morning, I frequently hear the hoot of an owl which I find so lovely. My favorite are crows. I know a lot of people don't like them, but I enjoy their antics. Sometimes we get a lot of them and I always try not to scare them off.

Maybe you should spread some corn out there. And maybe a birdfeeder would be good for you. We just got a couple...and we really like watching the birds.
