Spring in the mountains.....

Here is a veiw of my front yard with my huge porch.I have lots of plans for the porch.Duke doesn't like my plans and redecorates for me.LOL He likes to eat the furniture, tear up my cottage pillows, and rips up the cozy quilts.He takes down my decorations at xmas and halloween too. So I give up....Till we get a fence so he can't come up on the porch whenever he wants too.I want white picket vinyal to match my porch rails.I love it and its just so easy to wipe down and not have to worry about painting wood all the time.
This is my redecorator Duke.My male dane, he is 3 1/2 years old and 170 pounds.He can do lawns too.Rips out weeping willow trees with one tug and can carry a lawn mower like its a dog treat.

Here is the front veiw from the house.The mountain in front of the house is alot greener then out back.3 of my Great Danes also in the pic.Hunter is the Fawn,Timber a Brindle and Duke is Black.
This is the veiw from my sliding glass doors.Its a water fall that feeds our pond.Notice all the Dogwood trees in bloom?
Seems like the ducks are growing by the day.They are so funny to watch.When the boys get home from school and the ducks hear them talking while walking up the driveway they peep and start quacking.They follow the boys too,I guess they think there the moms.LOL
Here they are searching the pond for food.

Above is Mikey's Duck.He named it Oreo.Yup he was the lil sickly guy!

Wow are they ever getting big!
Remember you can click on the pics to enlarge them.Hope you enjoy,Jen

Wow Jen, what a cute family of ducks. I just love everything about them except what comes out of their back end. That's not so nice to step in with bare feet.

You have such a lovely place. I'd give about anything for a waterfall. Wow!

Aw Jenn,
Miss Goosey would love to join the duckies down by the pond for a swim! We don't have a pond....just a childs swimming pool.
She thinks its a pond though!

Hubby loves to wrestle with our sons' great dane! Not me... he is way to big and intimidating!

The views around your home are beautiful!

Thanks for shareing,

Thanks for the wonderful Spring tour of your property. The water fall is beautiful with the trees in bloom. The ducks are just so fuzzy and cute, hope you keep showing us more photos of them as they grow.
