Mr. and Mrs. Duck, Mac and Scout and green thumb

- Mr. and Mrs. Duck on a morning outing at Lilburn Greenway Park, where I walked Saturday morning with friend Laura and her two dogs.  I wish you could see the glory of Mr. Duck's teal head.  (Click to enlarge.)  It was unusual to see ducks near the entrance to the park - all we could think is that they had been investigating the new drainage ditch there.

- Passersby were chuckling at my attempt to photograph Macintosh and Scout (on the right), who would never stay still.  Since Scout is still a puppy, Laura is trying to teach her not to go crazy when others approach, by getting her to sit before getting a treat.

- It kind of worked, but not really.  :)

- And when I got home, neighbor Rhonda had brought home these beauties to plant in our common flower beds.   I am thankful for a neighbor with a green thumb.  I re-potted a plant on the back porch - that's about it so far.  :)  How I do love spring!

And on Sunday, I was delighted to see my first hummingbird of the season at the feeder!

I must agree with Mr and Mrs Duck -- there's nothing so lovely as a good drainage ditch.

Hello - I think I lost your email and I am not sure how. Thank you for writing me and remembering me - I am still thinking about blogging and going back - just not sure when. I am doing well - you? Just extremely busy. I just don't have the time to do justice to blogging right now.

The dogs are so sweet looking. Wish ours was people friendly.

Springtime in Atlanta is a blessing, not a season.

Cute pups and flowers. My adult mixed lab is still jumpy and wacky but that's just his fun-loving personality.

What could be more delightful than Mr. and Mrs. Duck, Scout, McIntosh and a visiting Hummingbird? You make me smile Lynn.

It's so lush there! Not here yet- The dogs will train up over time- I train the critter here but the home owner un-trains them, n gets jumped on n clawed! Treats do work- but don't run out...
I'm getting to some planting too- Hope to have time when I get home today.

I wish I had a neighbour that would plant beautiful flowers in our communal gardens. Apart from the fact we don't have communal gardens. :D

Oh my, look at all those green, growing things! I am getting so excited about spring. The leaves are opening this week. By next week we should be ready to rock and roll with some flowers!
