Bigger Ducklings

Wow did they grow over the Bank holiday Weekend,
they now have a bit of attitude and dive in the pool.


We will all be sorry to see them go and I have been tempted to keep them, the last time we kept ducks we had only just got the dog and she wasen't sure what to do with them. Being a hound I'm not sure it's a good idea.
A fox  managed to chew his way into the pen and had ours
( Donald, Daisy, Angel and all the babies in one go) for dinner.I don't think I could go through that again, so sadly  Zara will never have a pet duck to call her own                                            






 These are a few extra pic I took at work, I have never bothered much with the camera before.                                                  

These cottages are across the road from school they have lovely gardens with fish ponds and rock gardens
                           


This is the old prison cell  scary
                                         





 These steps are to help you mount your horse
                                           
you can see how well used they are          
                                                                      




 I thought these trees were so pretty



These are May Day posy baskets we made at Rainbows on Wednesday, we usually have a May Pole Dance at school which is so nice,  I am all for keeping up old traditions, in the past a posy of flowers would be hung on someones door knocker, they would knock on the door and run away, when the person opened the door they had a lovely suprise.
                                                                                            





      This is their version of the ducklings

Well that's all for now, Thanks Jillie, Karen and Sharon for your kind words I havent had a week like that for ages, Im not very good with stressy things they seem to kick everything off. I'm having large doses of Bach Rescue Remedy and the odd glass of wine, purely medicinal of course. I now feel I should proof read everything it makes you paranoid being in school.
bye for now

The cottages are gorgeous!

My chicks are starting their 'ugly' phase now, so I am unsure about posting photos of them looking so unkept, but your ducks still look so CUTE! x
