Take a look at this picture. This is what I see when walking directly out my door. It is my neighbor's flower garden. Looks beautiful right?
Okay this is really boring honestly. It's just green, there are no flowers yet, and honestly I hardly ever notice their plants. Yesterday was completely different however. But before I give it away let's take a closer look at the bushes there.
See anything interesting yet?
Now do you see it? Just the hint of it....
This is, and is going to continue to be the story of Lucy, my new pet. Yesterday morning I walked out of my front door and quite suddenly had a run in with a very surprised duck. (I have since learned it is a mallard duck after an hour long conversation with my momma) I was quite shocked to see a duck right outside my front door as usually they are outside my back door (I live on a lake). So me being the curious person I am I started looking around from where the duck came from. And what should I find but:
That's right! My adorable little duck is going to be a mama duck! This picture was actually taken today and there are 7 eggs today, yesterday there were only 5. Apparently mallard ducks lay anywhere between 10 and 15 eggs then sit on them for about a month before they hatch. I can't wait to see little baby ducks!! I don't have a picture of Lucy because she is a little afraid of me. I came up on her today sleeping but when I opened the door she woke up and left. She apparently thinks I'm sketchy. But I'll try and describe her. She's very small actually, the smallest duck I've see that's full grown. And she's a pretty tan and brown.
So for the next month I hope to periodically update on Lucy and her future ducklings!!
