As they hit the grass one little guy (girl?) turned and looked me straight in the eye and exclaimed "Peep! Peep?" I had no idea what the chat was about but decided to peep back. That is when we became fast friends. This little sweetie just waddled right up to me and peeped back...and we continued to peep and walk together for a bit. If anyone saw me they would most likely have thought I'd lost my mind, but we were having fun.
Back with the fold, peeper made it to the edge of the pond and without looking back he dove in under the water and surfaced a short time later happy as could be. Family- it is a wonderful thing! Just made me smile to stand and watch the antics a bit.
I had almost forgotten how lovely Shelburne can be. Later I shall show you some of the quilts I got to see. Right now I need to start my day, or I shall be terribly late! Oh to be a little duck swimming merrily along in a nice cool pond- eating what I like best and eyeing the lillies. A chat with a human or two...especially the ones who talk back, now wouldn't that be fun!
