Nature Walks – My Duck-A-Lings Are Back

My lakes are now complete. I have my goslings and now I have some “duck-a-lings” too. There was a momma Mallard with eight of her precious and precocious little darlings. They were having so much fun splish splashing in the water. Momma wanted to get out but the babies were having way too much fun. Typical. 🙂

I call them duck-a-lings, rather than ducklings because years ago, my niece had brought her two young daughters out to visit us and her older daughter, who was all of about three at the time, called our ducklings duck-a-lings. The cute term just stuck and I have used it ever since.

Life is short. Make the most of it and play to your heart’s content as long as you can. Be like the duck-a-lings. 🙂
