Years ago, my son and I lived out in the country and I could indulge in some of my animal wishes. And I did! I got two Pekin ducklings,
which quickly grew into two gorgeous white adult ducks.
They were most charming, Sherman and Mildred, were the names I gave them, whatever happened made them happy, the sunshine , the rain, anything that came along. They had a little pool they swam in every day and THAT made them happy, and their enthusiasm for life was infectious! They liked to come to the garden with me, and pick my cherry tomatoes and eat them, shake them all down the front of their white bibs! Then we got a pair of Indian Runners, funny, tall, skinny, great bug eaters who made themselves right at home.
People have called them Penguin Ducks

They were everybit as entertaining and merrymaking as the Pekins.
So why am I consumed with jealousy these days? Go visit
The Run Around Ranch and see for yourself. Then look at Run Around Ranch and see more of what I would love
in my yard.
Its hard to understand how one might have a yard full of ducks and not even a kiddie pool for them to swim in, no , we need a pond. I've got the fenced in yard, but I wonder how the City would feel about a pond. I can almost guess. Can you?
A while back I promised you a blog and photos of a hobby and have not presented that because the photography is not so easy to do. Stay tuned!
