Watery Wednesday, indeed!

We've had freezing rain overnight, with a foot of snow on the ground. The sidewalks in the city of Ottawa are treacherous. It's 10 C. above zero here in Lanark County to the south. Most of our ice just melted away, and I'm glad I moved the snow when I did!
I managed a good job on the driveway, and our driveway and sidewalks are now clear.
It's not pretty out there. The cats are happy as it seems like spring.
Well, not 'happy', but more inclined to go outdoors.

 I thought, what with the puddles down under the great pine tree, and in honour of the ice around us, I'd feature some old photos of the ducks!
 I miss our lake, loved watching the ducks over the seasons. Loved see them rest, with a dozen or more ducklings, on the flower rock!

Ducklings are just what I needed to see, Jenn. I went out today, and was very careful about where I walked, until I was almost at our door, when I forgot to look at my feet, and I fell. Landed in a low-lying snow-covered juniper, which was nice and soft, but hard to get out of.

Your words don't sound like fun, but your pictures make it look like a wonderful place!

Well, mallards aren't that far away from showing up from the south. Then we have the mallards that stick around all winter. Any little patch of open water and we have mallards.

Do please be careful. Kay from Canada just took a scary fall wIth that slippery snow.

I'm beginning to think of Spring myself. Nice pics of the ducks in flight.
