You know you’ve had a lot of rain when…..

.

As I mentioned before, spring has brought an abundance of showers to my little corner of Maine. As proof…. I offer the new visitors who dropped by this week.

A pair of mallard ducks who’ve made our backyard puddle their temporary home.

We had ducks as pets years ago and I’ve always enjoyed watching them. They’re quite comical.

But this pair is wild and flies off if they spot me. So for now, this is as close as my zoom lens will get me.

      1. I too had pet (Pekin) ducks as a kid. Best pets ever — comical, adorable, and ‘low maintenance’ (food, water to drink/splash around in, and no need to be brought into the house in bad weather). The main concern is that Pekin ducks can’t fly and are easy prey for carnivorous animals, so their area must be predator-proofed with high chain-link fence with no space between the ground and the bottom of the fence.

  1. I feel like I’m walking on a giant sponge when the dogs and I wander through the fields here in VT. Lots of rain, and snow (this morning), with ground too saturated to take it all in. So saturated that some water making it into my old basement through a crack in the foundation (arrgghhh).
