Mallards and Geese couples

Hello sweet blog family!  I am doing much better now than 2 months ago after losing my sweet Bill but it is so hard to be alone and I am missing him so much.  But I finally went out to lunch with a girlfriend yesterday and visited another widow in my neighborhood.  And today I am watching my "granddogs" for my daughter until Monday.  They are sweet little dogs though and give me no trouble so I will have good company for the rest of the weekend. :)    The Mallard couple and the Canadian Goose couple have come to nest nearby like they do every year on the little lake.

This female goose was right underneath the den window when I snapped this picture through the glass.

And here is the Goose and the Mallard sharing a few pieces of bread.

The Mallard couple is so beautiful.

And here are 2 Mallard males that visited early this morning.  They may be young bachelors born last spring who are looking for mates.  The green on their heads is so brilliant!

Here is the female Mallard eating the fallen birdseed under the window.  The Begonia plant is showing left on my window sill.
Thank you so much for visiting and come again soon.  And if you have time visit my other blogs listed in my sidebar.  Have a most wonderful Palm Sunday!
My wild heart to yours...

I do really enjoy your lovely ducks. Thanks for showing them to us. The goose is a beauty too. How wonderful to have them so close to your home.

Oh, sweet Kerrie ... I know how beautiful your yard setting is for all the wildlife that visits you daily. What a joy it must bring to you, it would me. Mallards are such beauties.

So glad that things are settling down for you. Time helps, slowly ... the heart loves forever.

Been sick, had eye surgery Thurs ... now getting better. Just haven't been in touch with anyone nor blogging much at all.

Miss you my precious friend. Know that we both are sending you big loving hugs.
Have a great eve ~
Love ya!

I can't wait to see their offspring again this year. What fun to watch them return.

Glad to hear that you are getting out and doing a few things, Kerrie - slowly, but surely! It has to be so difficult.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Wonderful post Kerrie and the photo;s as always awesome.
It is lonely I know but when I lost my husband my cat Tabitha was a comfort, she was diabetic and needed shots of insulin but she in her own way knew how lonely I was and never left my side.
Have a good Sunday.

Kerrie, you have the most amazing wildlife there, and you are always so nice to share with us. The mallards are gorgeous.

Wishes for a belated Happy Birthday. You look beautiful.♥

Hello, dear Kerrie...I'm so glad you came by for a visit.

Your mallard friends' visits must be comforting. Loneliness is so difficult. I'll be back to visit.

Glad you are getting out and participating in life. I think of you often. I'm glad you are surrounded by nature, family and friends. Bless you and have a Happy Easter!

Hi, Kerrie...

I hope you've been well. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I'm sorry my post broke the news about Thomas Kinkade. I was shocked also a few days ago, when I was told. He was young...54 years. I felt moved to write something.

I love when you visit, so come by whenever you feel like it.

Wishing you comfort and love,
Marianne o
