I have ducklings

Postby whis4ey » May 07, 2008 1:57 pm

Today we spied mama duck out on the pond with three little ducklings
They must have been hatched in the Japanese Garden because they are still much too young to be able to fly
Mama and Papa duck take turns at looking after them
Cool eh? :)

Oh how sweet!! Yes, those are still quite young, still have their fuzz! :D

They are lucky to have been hatched in your gardens, what a beautiful place to grow up!

Sweet! Now will all 3 return to your gardens and raise their young next year?

Great pics! Keep them coming as they grow! :)
