Romance In The Woods

I have ducks
Two of them
They've been visiting
for about a week
I don't have ponds
She was sitting in a puddle
in my driveway
They stayed a long time
I came downstairs and they were back
Just sitting
In my driveway
Like they lived here

I like ducks
Really I do
Had them as pets
Before I had cats

What if they settle down here
Where there is no water
Just a small stream
that flows in the woods

They must have listened to my birds
So he took her to my pink driveway
Romance and the ducks

Ducks are cool, we've got some in our lake...but mostly geese. They know you're a critter human so they are visiting you for a while.

Do the cats mind the ducks coming for their visit??

Ducks are very cool! I`m looking forward to my ducklings coming from the feed store. They`re to replace my pair that passed last year.

It was that carpet of pink petals that must have won her heart :) Maybe he convinced her that he had strewn them ;)

The ducks came back again yesterday. They just sit in the driveway like it's their own park. She sits in the puddle area .. a part of my driveway that dips in a bit and when it rains it gets a mini puddle.

The cats watch from their windows. Bird tv has been fun this week.

My only concern is if they do settle here. What to do with the babies ... Yikes !!

What cute little fevvers!!!

Dianne said...

they most likely feel your aura and know your place is a good place to go to be alone together - away from the gossip of the geese :)

they are so sweet

'Tis the season for romance:)

I've seen ducks spending days in puddles. Guess they think they have a private pond.

We have ducks here that like to sit in the driveway (but not ours) but we think the homeowner must feed them. That and there is a creek behind the house where they hang out. But there is something they like about the driveway - we totally don't understand it.

They're attracted to your good energy.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
