  1. I am going to refrain from kneeling, since that’s what set off my knee horrors last year. I can probably dig, and can definitely shepherd children, cook, and take photos. Your garden is so gorgeous that its worth pitching in just to get to look at the flower pictures. That, and coffee. See you sometime mid-morning.

  2. The duck story is so appealing. Sounds like something I’d do too! I have lots of ducks and geese of my own so I can relate. Glad it all turned out well.
