    Gorgeous pics ejctm, and gorgeous Runners too!!

    I wish I did. My daughter and I were talking about creating a prop background with fake snow so we can take some photos of ours in the snow. Where I live here in Australia snow is about 2 hours drive away from me- ( although Tasmania did get some on Boxing Day - and we are suppopsed to be in the middle of summer [​IMG] ) Mine are all hanging out in the pools today - its one of the hottest days we have had in weeks.

    great pics ejctm.... i would luv to have runners some day... My ducks dont really like the snow to well. They come out of the pen and sit in the straw and wonder in the snow for a short time and run back to thier pond..
    and ducky.. I WOULD KILL not to have snow EVER !!! I would never even consider FAKE snow as I hate it that much. lol
    these are snow pics so far this yr..

    thanks guys!

    I can't remember what it is like to have sun on my face, lol. Very strange for us Britishers to think of summer in December!

    Hattie, what lovely pics! Great idea with the straw, I think I will do this when it snows again to let them have a warm resting place. It rained today and a lot of the snow melted, so I had to put the ducks in the pen to prevent the disgusting mud patch that was once my garden from getting any worse! Bring on the Spring, and the grass can grow again (if there is any left!) After I took these pics, within a week the lovely pure white had turned to brown ice and slush, full of duck poops. SO fed up of snow now, but pretty while it lasted.
