You'll have noticed (I hope) that I changed the look of my blog. I've asked my daughter, who is studying graphic design, to create a banner for me, but she hasn't had time yet so I decided to play with some of my pictures, I thought these leaves looked interesting.
And for a bit of color, here is some Sweet William. It's sort of a volunteer in the yard, back about 5 years ago Dave covered our septic system mound with some wild flower seeds, and we had a lovely assortment that first year, some came back the next year but soon the grass took over. Some Sweet William always tries to come up each year, this patch is next to one of my beds so I've managed to keep it weeded.
Here's Agnes gobbeling up some cracked corn. We haven't seen much in the way of ducks these last few days, I was up early this morning and saw a female on Ducky Island, but she didn't stay around for long.
I'm wondering if now is the time that they molt, from what I have read they can't fly for a month while they get their new feathers.
