Mom and the Kids

 

Mom Duck and Ducklings

 

We recently spent a couple of days in Rancho Mirage in the California Desert, at the Westin Resort Villas.

 

It was nice to get away, although I had some work to take care of while there, and to enjoy some warmer weather in the 80s...and escape the May Gray we have been having in Carlsbad.

 

There was a wonderful pond and stream at the Westin Hotel next door and on one of our walks we enjoyed seeing Mom Duck and the kids out for a swim. I couldn't get them all in one photo, but she had 10 to keep track of.

Spring is all around, Jeff Dowler, CRS ! I so love this time of year with the flowering trees, baby birds and yes - even the deer with their newborn fawns - as long as they stay out of my yard!!

Jeff,

I never knew there was May Gray in Carlsbad. 

Here are the cousins in AZ, finding out all about the grub, plants, sun, shade, water...

Hi Lynnea Miller 

So very true. There is lots of bird activity in and around our yard. No deer here but we use to enjoy them and the fawns back in New England. There are some baby squirrels around, too!

Hi Steffy Hristova 

Oh yes, May Gray and June Gloom. We are having a lot of gray right now - some days it burns off by mid-day, and some days it never does.

That is a wonderful photo - THANK YOU for sharing that with us!

That was a busy mom trying to keep track of her 10 little ones and they look like they provided plenty of entertainment for the watchers!

Thanks for sharing the photos of the duck family.

My wife and I lived on a boat in Tennessee several years ago. Canadian geese came in the spring and hatched their young. They would swim buy the boat every day and it was such a joy to watch them grow.
