Duckling’s First Dip

It was a stupendously beautiful day here – perfect for the new ducklings first swim. Here are Puddles and Gabby testing out the water in my rubber tote.

Pekin Ducklings First Swim

  1. They are so cute in their little pool. Your pond is coming along beautifully, it will be wonderful when it is finished and the ducks have a new home.

    I like the hummingbird ornament. It reminds me of Tennessee which was where I use to live. Thanks for bringing back those memories.
