Baby Day at the Pond!

Mama Mallard brought her ducklings---lots of them!--out for a swim and a visit with the basking turtles.
Update: Twelve ducklings! Photo at top only shows eleven, but tardy one joined soon after.

On my way back to the studio, I found this teeny one in the grass, en route to the pond.

School Visit Season

A busy and delightful spring school (and library) visit time is winding down. My travels have taken me to seven schools in three states where I had the wonderful honor of meeting terrific students, teachers and librarians while presenting a variety of programs. 
Here are a few photos of kids from Bath and Portland, Maine.
