    We got a smaller back garden, but then we got smaller ducks! Three calls. Here they are on the paved bit around the house after scoffing peas:

    [​IMG]

    A bit of a better view of the space. We got a bit more land behind the shed. Putting a veg patch in the moment I get ONE MINUTE FREE FROM THE SIX MILLION OTHER THINGS I GOTTA DO!! lol

    [​IMG]

    When we had the bad windy weather, we set up a little paddling pool on the paved bit near the house which is sheltered by the summer house. They have a bigger one in the run but during the day they like to splash in this little one. Doogie couldn't get in and was sulking outside. I promise I helped him in after I took the picture lol!

    Goatwalker your back garden looks wonderful. It's so big!! We just don't have that kind of space in England. Certainly not for our budget lol.
    Rainplace I love the picture of the black runners and fluffly little mario!!! cyooot

    Priss, I love your duckies and your yard!

    Goatwalker, I love the pictures with the wild geese. Yeah, Mario is a hoot. He's the the main man in the pecking order among the guys. One day he was hanging off Jack's wing while Jack was trying to run away. It was hilarious.
