Every year at about this time we start hearing a faint 'honking' noise at all hours of the night. Usually it's not too long after this starts that we have our first duck sighting:
I think it's pretty amazing that we live in a reasonably built up area, yet we still have wild ducks wandering through our yard. Unfortunately Little Snicker is a bit too young to understand all the excitement as I dash to put my shoes on, grab him a hat and run outside to look at them before they disappear. Maybe next year he might get excited.
I have to say though, that these wild ducks are nowhere near as cute as the ducks my lovely friend Rach of Picklebug Designs has! She has her own mini farm going on and also makes some awesome glass pendants. You should swing by her blog and take a look!
