Izzy’s ducklings will be five weeks old on Sunday.
I swear they grow bigger with every breath they take.
Their feetsies are getting ginormous and they’re already sprouting feathers.
We haven’t named any of them yet, but one still looks like Izzy Junior.
Izzy loves her babies.

I haven’t done Saturday Parts or Saturday Stuff in a long time, so I figure now’s as good a time as any to share pictures that I don’t know what to do with or don’t fit in a post of their own.
The ducklings. Back when innocence ruled and they all sought each other out for comfort. I think this photo was probably taken sometime in June of last year:
This jack used to live on the other side of the alfalfa pasture behind Morning Bray Farm:
Sadly, he was alone and brayed a lot, especially after Gracie came to live with us. We called him the “donkey in the distance” or DITD (Diddy). Later, because we believe that all donkeys deserve dignified names, we named him Eugene and called him E. Diddy. We walked to visit with him and give him scritches every weekend. He’s gone now; we don’t know what happened to him.
And last for this week, a nest in our barn. I’ve never seen a “sideways nest” and am wondering what kind of bird this might belong to. Sparrows, maybe?
