Gardening has been one of my hobbies as well as photography and just being outdoors.

For some reason we had five mallard ducks waddling to our front yard last week. There are 4 males and 1 female. Since we live in a fairly normal suburban neighborhood setting this seemed to be very odd. There is a lake nearby and several ponds in the surrounding area but none next to our house. They started showing up Tuesday morning then later that evening. We fed them some bread on Tuesday so they started showing up pretty much on schedule for the next three days. We set out a bowl of water and fed them breakfast and dinner. The kids really enjoyed it and got a kick out of one almost coming into the house when I left the door open while getting more bread. We haven’t seen them for several days now, I am hoping they come back for grasshopper season. I have some pictures that I will try to upload later.
