The Miracle of Life

The mir­a­cle of life! I’ve writ­ten before about the ani­mals that also call my prop­er­ty home. The vari­ety of crea­tures that mill about our pond and acreage are var­ied. But one, in par­tic­u­lar, has cap­ti­vat­ed my fam­i­ly. Our res­i­dent ducks! One of the female ducks has tried for years to hatch a clutch of eggs. She lays her…
