At long last we saw a family of ducks. Normally there would be several by this time but not this year. The ducklings were so new and so cute. Also very active as we tried to count how many there were. Maybe 7 or 8, we couldn't be sure.
This pair of Canada Geese had exactly one little one!
As we walked farther away from the lake there were Poppies and Lupines blooming in a raised bed.
My Poppies have big fat buds but so far none have opened. I'm not sure my Lupines came back this year because I still haven't pulled all the Forget-me-nots out. The Lupines could be under all that mess.
We heard Crows making a big racket and went to investigate. There was a raccoon about 20' up in a tree. That was earlier in the week. I'm wondering if I mentioned that already.
We had a lovely day with mostly sunshine. I worked outside for a couple of hours then came in to put my feet up and read more Miss Read . I'm so glad there's leftover vegetable soup for supper. I'll make cheese toast to go with it. I love when I don't have to wonder what to make!
Thanks for visiting, G.M.
