A Mallard Duck in my Backyard

A Mallard Duck in my backyard

A mallard duck in my backyard.  Really!  Who knew. It’s a first (there is no pond in my back yard).

And he was all by himself on this lovely wet spring day, a day that reminds me of the spring days that my father  (an avid trout fisherman) would look at me and say, “Mary, I think the trouties are biting.”
