A springtime surprise!
Remember our duck who was sitting on some eggs? Well, she surprised us all last night when we noticed her eggs had hatched! It serves me right for saying she was a such a lousy sitter! There are 5 of THE MOST cutest ducklings I've ever seen... with tiny little orange beaks and black eyes and all of that uncoordination that goes along with ducklings...from getting rolled out of the nest and flapping uncontrollably to find a way back in, to trying in vain to snap at a passing fly and scurrying after the family, when one has realised it has been left behind on the grass in a daydream.
.....here they all are marching back to the nest after mamma............
Did I mention they are SO cute??!!
