Duck, Duck, Goose

This past spring we took a trip to the bay area for dinner. On our way home we stopped in the town where our children were born. There is a man-made lake that is the home to ducks and geese. We took our children there when they were just toddlers. So since we had the boys, we stoped by to say hello to our feathered friends and feed them like we did with their mother.

Samuel and Redmond had the best time.

This is our daughter who was just in diapers when she started visiting and feeding the ducks and geese.

"Where's mine?"

I came over to visit from Becky's blog after reading her post about your garden. Love it!! There is nothing better than a garden that has little secrets and whimsical treasures at every twist and turn. I love the pots overflowing with color...

I had a chance to read some of your posts. I got a kick out of the English gentleman in McDonalds. Yes, I think the thought of fish & chips may have made them gag! LOL!!

This post is great. How nice to re~visit a place you have filed under "best memories" in your mind! The ducks are precious, as are your grandsons! :-)

Have a great day, Jean!!

Hi Jean...I just popped over from Sweet Cottage Dream where she posted about your lovely garden. You are a GREAT gardener and I love all the charming touches.

You trip to the coast was fun to follow along with too....what a nice time!

Hi Miss Jean,
I just stopped in at Becky's and visited your garden. She sent me straight over here to find out how you put together your "Alice in Wonderland" flowerpot tower. Your garden is charming. I don't envy all that watering in this valley heat though. Your trips to the bay area and coast looked refreshing. I bet the ducks are glad you missed that sign!

I bet the ducks enjoyed your seems more special because you visited there with your daughter as well. A special memory to share with your grandsons...

Do you think the Chamber of Commerce hired the ducks for a "Meet and Greet"?

That is wonderful that they come right up to you! The ducks at our lake always swim AWAY when I try to feed them....great photos!

Have a GREAT weekend!

I found your blog by reading Sweet Cottage Dreams.... and fell in love with many of your garden creations, especially the stack of pots. I am sure you are going to get a lot of post asking for the "How To" on making the stack of pots. What a great idea.
By the way I live the Bay Area, Calfornia, and I agree when it gets in the high 90's-100 the only thing you can do is go to the Beach!
