Sunday morning visitors: The Mallards

Spring must be here because we have ducks in the swimming pool. It’s nice to know someone is enjoying the cold water. Our new concrete is obviously more realistic than we imagined, as this is the first time in 3 years we have had ducks come for a swim and a visit.

There are other wild things lurking in our backyard. Pesto has spotted the new “prey” and began his hunt. I seriously doubt he will be successful, but it’s funny to watch him watch them.

Rarely a dull moment around here!

Hopefully you are all enjoying an equally entertaining and relaxing Sunday.

    • While I admit we are completely charmed and captivated right now, M and I are already discussing strategies to prod them along to a more natural environment. Still, it’s kind of fun to watch them swimming and enjoying the pool.
