Tuesday Photo Challenge – Growth

This week Frank gives us the theme of growth.

Mum loved to watch the little ducklings on the pond in the park, so when she came for her holidays when we were in the cottage, I always tried to take her somewhere to see some.

This photo was taken on the River Slea at Sleaford. Mum wasn’t with me that day as it was May 2014, the month before we moved away, but we sent a copy of it via email to my sister and hope she printed it off, or at least let Mum see it. There are five, perhaps 6 ducklings in the photo.

Mum would have been in heaven if she’d seen these little darlings hatched on our neighbours boat in May 2015, a year later.
They couldn’t take their boat anywhere until the eggs hatched as Mrs Mallard had taken a shine to the bucket on their bow!

Of course last year I took loads of photos of the ducks and geese growing up here.
These tiny fuzzballs grow into the most beautiful creatures. Nature is wonderful.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
