I named this duck (the brown one in the front) "Forrest Gump" because no matter where he/she's going she is R-U-N-N-I-N-G!!!!
When they see me coming, they get out of the water, cross the road (if necessary) and start running towards me...well, the white one waddles as a duck should, but the brown one is always running really, really fast. She stretches her body tall and long and sometimes she quaaaaaks while she runs...what a funny duck!
"Where's the bread?" they would say if they could talk...
Here it is...hold your duckies (ahem, horses!)
After they had their breakfast they went back into the water, quite satisfied and proud of themselves for scoring yet another meal from the humans. (Gizzy barked the whole time - obviously, he's not into sharing!)
I set my alarm clock for 6 am every morning to go down to the lake before the sun comes up and to be home by 9 or 9:30 am. If I don't start doing that, summer will become unbearable and I will go stir crazy being inside all the time. (God only knows what will become of Gizzy - he's already sleeping his life away.)
There are several of these pink flowers whose name I don't know. To me they look like some sort of Lily maybe? Actually, if you look at the single stem and those multiple blossoms, don't they look like an Amaryllis? (...and they are in the Lily family)
I saw a little cotton tail bunny hopping across the lawn. It stayed just for a moment before quickly disappearing inside the big Azalea bush.
I always enjoy looking at the Sago palm and the ornamental grass with the stripes that's growing beside it.
I saw this bright, green vine climbing up that tree and I though it looked pretty in the early morning light.
I don't know what these flowers are, but to me they look like some sort of orange Iris...they're almost as tall as a person.
Looky here, Gizzy, who's that? Why, it's our friend, Sandy, walking her two little dogs around the lake too. We stopped only to talk for a little while before moving on, as it was getting hotter very quickly...
