Darned Ducks...

Sorry I've missed a few posts. Mom pulled a bonehead move (love you mom) and took the camera with her.   Connie has been so kind as to take some pictures with her phone, so I have something to blog about. Speaking of which...

This is the barren patch where a duck got into the garlic row...

So Connie, in a stroke of brilliant logic, got some greens in an attempt to pacify them. We'll see if it works.

I sure am glad she's around to take care of things for me.


  1. how is your weather....? lately?

  2. It's been HORRIBLE, but it's taken a turn for the better, thank goodness!
