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 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
