My ducks thought they'd have a nice peaceful early morning rest on the shoreline.Mama Muscovie duck sat on the duck and her adopted 4 Indian Runner youngins' hung out on the water's edge.Angus, the yellow tomcat, had the idea he could ambush them in the early fog.One quick pounce from behind the rowboat, but the Indian Runners are named so for a reason~ sorry Angus! They're ahead of you! I think they were teasing him to "C'mon out, the water's fine!"hahahahaha! (If you click on the picture it will enlarge so you can see up close).He trotted off into the woods, sullen and muttering to himself.
Chickens and turkeys are stretching their wings from sleep and have started pecking about .Roosters are crowing to awaken the the farm.The morning is foggy & wet but not raining.I have a lot to do.Canning stringbeans & some waxbeans is time consuming .I want to get an early start.
