It is very dry here. It has been well over 30 days with out rain. To say we are in a drought is an understatement! The good thing is at least we are not a 100* plus like last years drought! That's life in Texas....sigh!
The garden is a good piece from the house and there is no water out there and if it is going to survive it has to have some water! Hubby say he is going to run water out there...Hubby has been saying that for 3 years! ( I can hear a collective mmmm-hhhmmmm from all you wives out there!) I ran my own water out there by using several water hoses connected together and this year one sprang a leak to the duck's delight! Now if you have ever had ducks you know if they have even a sprinkling of a muddy place they will work it with their little duck bills until it grows into a pond and that is what they have been working on all summer!
Those are Crazy Daisey's babies splashing around and Butterscotch the buff runner giving us the "duck eye"!
The ducks, I think, have unionized ! They worked hard at wallerin' out a little pond for them selves!
All summer long the quaking of orders and the loud duck "laughs" by the foreman duck to quit lolly gagging and get back to work! These ducks are floating...their mud hole may not be wide but it is deep!
Well...it is not exactly big enough for all the ducks at once...maybe it is a time share mud hole! Ducks! If they weren't so distracted by water they could rule the world... Bwaaahahaaha! OK, maybe not the whole world, maybe just the wet parts!
