Sunday's picture and a story: Make Way for Ducklings
|"Make Way for Ducklings", bronze sculpture by Nancy Schon in the Boston Public Garden|
Whether you're two or 23, there's something irresistibly charming about the bronze statues of the mother duck and her eight baby ducklings from Robert McCloskey's classic children's tale, Make Way for Ducklings, in the Boston Public Garden. The story about Mr. and Mrs. Mallard's search for just the right place to start their family has long been a favorite and perhaps inspired my own need to find just the right home for our two children whenever we moved to a new country. And now they're both in Boston - just like Mrs. Mallard's ducklings!
