A visit to the duck pond

I’ve written before about how much I enjoy the gardens at Government House, which are a short walk away from our house. They were a main stay of my walking regime during the new mama survival challenge this time last year, and I have to say it is such a joy (and relief) to be visiting the gardens with a much greater sense of ease.

As usual, spring arrives astonishing fast in Victoria. Snowdrops, irises, hellebores, primulas, cyclamen and more, all in bloom already. Little man was oh-so-patient while I took a few photos, but the real attraction of our walk yesterday was the visit to the duck pond. We’ve been there before, but this was the first time we were really there. All these months I’ve been singing a song about ducks and yesterday was the big click: ok, those are ducks! And then at home, pointing out everything with a picture of a duck on it with a huge smile. So neat to see the connections happening. Just like little flowers blooming.
