I'm just going to use the florals that are spring colors with light colored backgrounds, and border them with pink, light green, yellow or lavender. I'll keep the blue and white cornerstone blocks consistent. So far I'm pleased how it's coming out - with all of 4 blocks done!
In addition to watching the ducks, we had some other bird visitors on Sunday. After consulting a book I determined that they were Flickers.
The ducks are still coming and going, yesterday Agnes and Alfred came by 3 times, and were hungry each trip. They waddled towards the house, I met them at the bottom of the stairs to the deck to feed them, which lasted until Jessie couldn't stand it any more and chased them back to the pond.
