I don't recall the name of these ducks but I sure enjoy watching them each day as they lounge around our yard. Lately they have been spending a lot of time in the wild flower garden and we discovered why. Our oak tree in the front yard is having a bumper crop of acorns this year and my husband has been constantly sweeping them up trying to keep the driveway and street semi-clean of them. We don't know if they are good for the garden and plants so we've spread them in behind the flowers where we want to keep a path open for tending. I see the ducks back there pecking away; very happy.
These are the acorns they are enjoying. I'm hoping to incorporate a few into some fiber studies; not sure just how yet but I'll be experimenting this winter.
