    EAST HEMPFIELD TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Some popular guests have returned to a Lancaster County grocery store.

    Two of the three ducks that usually nest at Stauffer's of Kissel Hill on Roherstown Road in East Hempfield Township have returned.

    The one most shoppers will see named Daisey. Workers had to set up a special area just for her because of construction at the store this year.

    Daisey nests in a bag of mulch for about a month and then she and her babies put on a show.

    Workers then lead Daisey and her babies to the loading dock in the back of the garden center where they walk down a ramp built just for them and into the stream behind the property.

    The other visitor, Deliliah, is a little harder to see. She's nests back by the stream in a tree box.

    It just warms my heart to see people who care so much. [​IMG]
