For five years Ricky and Lucy have arrived by mid-March. Last week we wondered, where are they? These lovely mallards returned to their summer “home” in time to delight guests at the Innkeeper’s Reception on Friday.
Each year, these two become a bit more brave, although as you can tell from the photo Lucy still does not like to have photos taken. This morning, they dined below the bird feed while guests enjoyed their breakfast. Then off to the waterfalls & our pond for a swim and nap.
Ricky & Lucy aren’t talking about their trip, nor why they arrived more than a week late. We’re left guessing. And grateful for their appearance and the wonderful rhythm of life.
