We have ducks in our dyke!! Ha ha! That sounds so funny . We really do!! Our ditch that is in front of our house has two families of little ducks in it. I saw them the other night when I came back from walking the dogs . They were swimming with their Mama duck up the stream. The water must be pretty clean here for the ducks to have decided to make it their home for the breeding season. I must try to get some pictures of them , but if you are seen by mama duck , she gets spooked & flies off , leaving her babies on their own. We have a big fox & a few cats around here so they are quite vulnerable when she is not there.
Its certainly weather for ducks this week! Poor Mr T has got quite wet with his new job , gardening. He has learnt a lot though & happily helps me in the garden now. He does all the heavy stuff I cannot do & the garden is transforming before our eyes! No longer just grass. It has trees planted & fruit bushes & veg patches & flower beds. The bulbs eventually came up & have given such a lovely display. We still have daffs in the garden & its nearly June. The tulips have been fab! Their petals slowly opening to reveal a different view inside them. I am going to plant more for next year & have some along the front hedge to give a display from the lane.
