Spring visit from the Ducks

Spring Time!!  Warmer weather and sweet sunshine....are we there yet?  Are we there yet?
 Spring is definitely near when the mallard ducks visit my back yard....
 This photo is from 3 years ago....they have come back every spring!  The male and female would visit every day...then just the female...Then one day -- DUCKLINGS!!!
 Oh my!  Oh my!  They couldn't get out of the pool!  Mama duck kept trying to get them to follow her, but they couldn't jump up high enough!  My son and I placed this board for them to climb on to the patio.
 It took them a while, but they finally got it!
I've been working on spring assemblages these past few weeks...

 I used an image from the graphics fairy.  Printed it on fabric using the freezer paper method.
 Added lots of laces, pearls, roses, vintage jewelry, found objects, and last - but not least - a little nest of eggs that I made using the beaded fabrics that I also use to make pretty autumn pumpkins
The ducklings only stay about a day or two.  Then mama duck takes them elsewhere.  We keep the wooden plank (now warped) just for the ducks...we just pull it out of the garage every spring for them!  Right now, mama duck is bringing two males with her to visit our pool every morning.  That's new from last year!
  Hopefully we'll have ducklings again this year.  I so love to watch them for the short time that they are here!  Thanks for visiting my little blog-- so happy you are here!

Hugs, Catherine
