You know it's May in Maine- the Duck House at Deering Oaks has returned from winter storage. Growing up in the city, it was almost a 'rite of passage' when the duck house and the fountain were back in service each spring. When I worked for the City of Portland in college, I remember seeing it wintered, along with the city's police horses, in a storage building next to the Expo. I always wondered, as a small child, where it went. Secret solved! I love this view of Park Avenue lined with trees. Enjoy it! Because in another week, you won't be able to see these apartment buildings. The trees will have exploded!
