This Mallard appears to be sleeping but on close look eyes
are wide open. Can they sleep with open eyes?

The walk is done.
The pace today was horribly slow, but I enjoyed it anyway.
Looking across the Lake to those budding trees!

Notes to self ...

Tuesday walks are a bit more of a challenge after spending all morning doing my volunteer shift in the Intermediate Care Nursery at the hospital. Held a couple of premie babies, both had digestive complications. Back home had some lunch and then headed over to Green Lake. Just about perfect weather for a walk which seemed unlikely earlier this morning when I awoke to heavy rain pounding down on the roof.


  1. ...John, the weather here was changeable and when averaged it was a great day. Thanks for taking me along on your walk, let's do it again.

  2. It all looks so springlike and beautiful! I missed the heron, though. :-)

  3. Looks to me like it was good to wait till later to walk. The sky looks perfect and the trees are so pretty.

  4. Such lovely spring trees. The mallard seems quite content.

  5. Hello, it is nice to see the trees turning green. The views are lovely on your walk. Love the cute duck. Enjoy your day!

  6. At least it does not seem to be raining today. Good on you working at the Hospital like that
