Ducklings and nasturtiums (spring)

It has been a gorgeous day today – clear blue sky, mild sunny weather, the smells of spring (wisteria blossoming, jasmine) and its colours (pansies in pots, marigolds, nasturtiums). There are babies being born too – notably for me this week a sighting of a brood of ducklings in the parklands when I was in the city for an event. Walking along beside a man-made waterway, there was a family gathered together on a little bridge across said streamlet. I wonder how they will live, these urban birds, surrounded by the sounds of cars and the commonness of concrete. I hope they find ways to express their duck-ness amid the built up world, alongside their city pals, the magpies and sparrows.

Here are some random shots, taken this week (including the ducks) (and the nasturtiums)…
