Ducks in a Row

Since retiring at the end of December, I have been fairly busy with paperwork making sure 'all my ducks were in a row'.  Yesterday I made a trip down island to finalize the process.  It was a lovely day for a drive ~ about 14 C, and the sun was shining!  Unfortunately I didn't have time to take many photos because I was focussed on the job at hand.  


I did notice the sunshiny winter jasmine by my front door ...

and later on in the day as I waited in the park to meet my brother, I had confirmation that my day was a success!

Just edited to add this photo I just took of the spectacular evening sky (5:00 p.m.) from outside the front door.

  1. Oh, how cheery those jasmines look! I'm glad to hear your ducks are in a row -- care to come arrange mine? Or maybe we'll both just gaze at your gorgeous evening sunset...

  2. Three beautiful calming images. I love them. The colour of flower the wonder of the ducks and the fire in the sky... all perfectly lovely.

  3. Someone should teach the ducks to use the pedestrian crossing LOL.
    Great photos of the ducks in a line and the beautiful sunset.

  4. 14C and sunshine makes me sigh, and just a touch envious, as it's cold and wet here today!
    Lovely photos! Flighty xx

  5. Hi Nikki ~ Yes, it's nice to see the brightness that winter jasmine shares ~ there's also a mock orange bush beside it that looks like it's thinking of budding! Perhaps arranging ducks may become a new retirement pastime, but they do seem to have a mind of their own! A lovely sunset indeed!

    Hi Daffy ~ So glad you enjoyed the photos. I'm hoping to capture a few more images since I'm not free to do so!

    Hi John ~ We have special duck crossing signs here so I think the ducks have learned that they can do as they wish ~ and ignore people crosswalks. It would have been considerate of them to walk across the crosswalk just for the photo though! Yes, it was a lovely sunset...

    Hi Flighty ~ Another nice day yesterday and today, as well, ~ a feeling of spring is in the air!
