Pond Cleaning Day

There’s lots to see around here. Fluffy bunnies, colourful roosters. Baby chicks, drinking cavies. All very adorable and fun to watch. But there is NOTHING that beats watching ducks on pond cleaning day. They are just so hysterically happy about it. I can’t describe it – you have to watch it! 😀

Cleaning the pond is very hard and dirty work that takes up half the day. But now, in the summer holidays, I have a great team of teenage girls who help me! They giggle, take selfies with bunnies and are generally adorable, reminding me of when I was fourteen myself. But in between, they do serious work. After a few hours, four bottles of vinegar and a lot of slipping on the green pond floor, the pond is sparkling clean and the ducks are having a whale of a time!

I love how in these pictures, the white duck looks like some sort of splashing apparition that descended from the heavens to enjoy the clean pond! :mrgreen:
