Coming Sunday: Ducks at Dusk!!

This free, hour-long event is a low-keyed celebration of the waterfowl who use the Celery Farm as their bed and breakfast. They fly in around dusk, hence the name. 

Please buy a 2011 Celery Farm calendar while you're there!

Note: The event had been called "Waterfowl at Sunset" and "Teal There Was You," but nobody showed up but the ducks.*

Ducks at Dusk: Sunday, October 24, 5:30 - 6:30 p.m., Celery Farm.

Meet at the Warden's Watch at 5:30 PM (still DST).

Leader: Mike Limatola.

Artist Muriel Christensen of Houston writes:

"Winter Reflections ( at Celery Farm)," above is from a reflection found in the same spot as a painting I made last year with ducks/mallards.

This was juried into the 2010 Watercolor Art Society-Houston’s Annual Members’ Exhibit among 230 paintings. 90 paintings were selected in the final go-round. Then among those 90,  40 received additional awards.  This one was one of the 40….

(Congratulations, Muriel!)
