Sure Sign of Spring

Except it isn't. Spring, that is. But the DUCK in our yard thought it was. We've lived in this house for ten years and have had many animals, including a frog, in our yard, but never before have we seen a duck. The other day we had two moose visiting, although they stayed on the outside edge of our lawn. Last year we had one who came up to the window and licked it.

After weeks of very cold weather (-35 at times) today we woke up to rain and thawing winds blowing through. So disgusting. Yuck. I never complained about the super cold temps because I'd much rather that than this. We know that having a duck in the yard doesn't mean it's spring, but if my tulips start to bloom, I'll be ticked.
