With a waddle and a quack …

and much flapping …

Flappy duck

Flora got fed up being photographed on the garden bench!

“There’s good long grass with lots of lovely bugs, just waiting for me to gobble them up.  I’ve been here for 30 seconds and I’m off.”

In a flap, she landed and, because Flora can’t actually fly (too fat), she bumped her chin!  Then straight into Hyper Waddle, all the way back to the apple tree, to scourge the grass for tasty bugs!

Just before she flapped off though …






We had a little chat about what I was doing with the clicky-thing and whether I was really going to make her a headscarf, to wear on Christmas day!  We love our clucky chats, but I think that Flora loves bugs-in-the-grass more …



She’s still laying eggs (and hiding them around the garden in secret nests) and a couple, fried on top of crisp toast, were just the ticket for C who popped in on her way back up North.  It was lovely to see my great friend, over from the States yesterday, too.  We shared an evening of catch-up, long overdue, and I went home from my favourite Brasserie Blanc with a warm glow – tasty food, great company and shared stories about sewing machines and quilting!

Back to the sewing machine(s) now, to replenish stock for this weekend’s fairs (yes, it’s plural) …

Saturday in Alton – Craft Market & Farmers Market
Sunday in Winchester – Special Christmas Market & Farmers Market

Much sewing to be done,
Friends, family and fun …

    Its like she’s saying ‘I am not looking at the camera’! Mich 🙂 (My dog does that same look when I get out my camera)


  • I guess ducks, like cats don’t always want to keep still for our pleasure!

    Oh, she is beautiful! I love your photos from your last post too – your work is fabulous. I imagine Flora will be inspiring your creations quite a bit!
    Our dog is very lazy so easy to photograph – I think I would definitely struggle to capture a duck 🙂
