SURE SIGN OF FALL, THE MALLARDS

I LOVE THE FALL WHEN THE MALLARDS FREQUENT THE POND IN BACK OF OUR HOUSE.  THEYcome in the spring to court and woo and to raise their young and then they come in the fall with their lifetime mates and others because they are not in competition at this time of year.  Two male and two female have been visiting every day now.  My hubby puts a little bird seed on the ground near the pond and they come to get it.  If I see them, I also yell, "Hi babies!" and they come up to the window for a little handout of bread cubes.  I just love seeing them up close and personal.  The feathers are beautiful and divinely designed.  Thanking the Lord for all his beautiful creatures!

Hoping your Monday was anything but Blue!  Come by again soon, you know I love company!

My heart to yours...
