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!
