When husband and I first were apartment hunting, the manager here pointed out some ducks that had made their home around the pool. They come back every year, she told us, as the pair of mallards waddled around.
When I went for my walk this afternoon, there they were, first lounging by the pool, then hanging out on a front lawn. Well, what passes for a lawn here in OK this time of year.
I love the idea of a pair of mallards not only having that kind of direction-sense, but also that they are attached to this complex in what one could not exactly describe as "greenspace."
It made me very happy to see them today.
