A little while ago, I blogged about our new neighbors. I put forth my theory that they had eloped. I think I was right because this is what I saw when I looked outside this morning:
Yep, that's mama and 8 little ducklings.
Obviously, the honeymoon was a success and the ducks feel that our "honeymoon resort" also makes a great "family resort". And word is getting out because the numbers are increasing.
And don't even think these ducks are above a little morning dip in the hot tub.
(In truth, I was a little worried when I saw them heading for the hot tub. I thought maybe it would be too hot and would cook the little ducklings. I guess mama knows best. She pushed them right in and they appear to be fine. Who doesn't need a little hot spring action?)
It's like having Animal Planet right in my backyard. But, I do wonder what all the chlorine is doing to their little systems.
