Sometimes where I live really saps my cynicism.

It does. Really and truly.
You get these days sometimes when it seems like Edinburgh goes out of its way to be gorgeous at me. I find it difficult to keep up my cynical, devil-may-care attitude on these days.

These tufted ducks were all paired off. Except for one - the dorky, fat little male one at the front of this picture. He's utterly adorable, and we couldn't work out why he wouldn't have a lady-duck-friend. We named him George. I hope he's found someone to love.

Perhaps George the Duck has his sights set on that swan. . .

Very pretty!! We have a similar 'lake' nearby and the ducks and geese there are also in a scramble for mates.

Gee, I hope George finds a duckling he likes! (Like the rest of us...)
