These are my chicks, Blackie and Red, Goldie was camera shy. Blackie's real name is Tiger Lilly and Red is really Ranbutan. Goldie, not pictured, is Sassafras. Lovely names, but they are not fussy, they usually just respond to the sound of the door opening as food is brought to them. Most of their day they are in a pen, but when they are out, they come running. They don't mind which names we give them, they only like us for food. Humph.
The ducks are a completely different story. I was looking out the back window at the wild back area of our property and there, sweetly walking together were Mr. and Mrs. Mallard. I quickly snapped some pictures but sun and shade were not very helpful.
As for geese..no geese and no surrey. But I still like the song.
As for scurry? Isn't that the way some Saturdays fly by? I "scurried" all day, working about the house in the morning, going to water aerobics, shopping for groceries, and helping at my friend's new bakery*. All on a lovely spring Saturday.
*More about the bakery in another post to come.
