A Week Of Frosts

This morning was the start of a week of morning frosts. I fed the sheep last night so their wool had frosty tips the sheep seemed happy enough.

The grass was really crunchy underfoot.

I had difficulty opening the door on the duck shed as it had frozen.
The duck pond was a skating rink.
And I gave the dogs a warm breakfast.
And it will all happen again tomorrow.

Ducks at Malmsbury
Muscovy at the Malmsbury Lake
My Mothers Day gift.  I'm so thankful to have wonderful children and I don't believe in gifts for Mothers Day.  However as well as a lovely day out I received 3 Muscovy ducks.  They are locally bred ducks and as far as I can tell listening to duck talk they are very happy here.

We have a Pekin duck called Ducky Do.  Ducky do had a friend who sadly dropped dead.
All the ducks are happy living together.

The Muscovy ducks like to swim and splash in their pool - but one at a time.

On the Saturday of the Mothers Day weekend I enjoyed a delicious breakfast and a relaxing walk around the lake at Malmsbury thanks to family.

The weather was perfect.
