Saturday Rerun: Nice Weather For Ducks





On some weekends I'll be reposting some tablescapes from last summer.
Hopefully more visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy them on this second time around.

Ducks are often the fall guys in the animal kingdom:
 bad weather - nice weather for ducks
powerlessness - lame duck
bad hair styles - ducktail
tasks that require no effort - duck soup
funny gait - duck walk
obliviousness - like water off a duck's back
final indignity, inglorious death - dead duck
when ducks triumph, it is only by chance, not skill - lucky duck
youthful gawkiness - (promise, turns out to be unfounded since the "duck" is a swan) - ugly duckling

This poor duck is so wet he's taken to wearing rain gear this year during our monsoons!
