Growing Away.

Not many words today, but plenty of pictures of how I waste my time by watching the ducklings doing what they do which is mostly swimming on our pond.

and eating

followed by a little more swimming

which makes them hungry so...

I guess you get the picture.

Sweet May and little Pecan, growing huge feet and long beaks, but gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.

That's it apart from a peek at the makings of something new in the fruity line which I do work on when not duckling distracted.

What is catching your eye today? x


  1. I can see how easy it would be to be distracted by them, they are beautiful!!
    We have so many young starlings around us and I do love to hear them chattering in the trees. However they still haven't realised that they can't fly through glass, they get themselves stuck in the garage when they fly in and try to get out at the window and they are forever flying into the windows in the house.

  10. Pipany, those ducklings are adorable, and its such fun to see them have their early swimming lessons.

    I love that photo of the embroidery. Those Cornish blue and white stripes are beautifully captured.


  11. What fantastic photos Pipany, I think I could spend lots of time watching those ducklings. Hope your new little duckling is doing well too.

  12. I love the sound of ducklings peeping as they swim around. Lovely pictures!

  13. The ducklings are so adorable - I know I would just want to watch them all day! They do grow fast though, don't they - almost before your eyes! Enjoy your weekend, Pipany!
