30 Words::Thaw

Standing furtively at rivers' edge
shifting webbed feet
they
study the pocket of open water
apprehensively.
Then
one brave webbed toe
dips...
Proof that spring is back with
joyous
quack-splashing.






Enjoy the day!

yay - one of my favorite books as a child was 'make way for ducklings'... the mallards near me are a connection to everything... and when the ducklings arrive, i am in heaven!

Love this. You are music, my friend.

The ducks have been filling the Midwestern skies in their signature V formations - by the thousands one group after the next making their way back North bringing Spring weather with them. Another reminder for me to remember to look up instead of at the ground under my feet. Have a lovely day....

Spring is in the air...I can smell it!

You just made me smile. :)

Love the photo! It takes me back to the days when I was young and we had ducks. How I wish my kids could experience this as well....

It's cold and rainy here. Bleh...

That was quacktastic!!!

We're having rain and rain and more rain... but I keep telling myself "At least it isn't snow!"

And I got the earrings today! OH MY GOSH! Gorgeous! And I can't believe you sent me three pairs ... way too generous. I'm putting together a little thank you post and hope to have it up sometime soon. And I'll get busy reading the books for you! You're the best!!
