(WICHITA, Kan.) — You might not see her hidden among the flowers, but take a close look to see it is no statue or decoration.
nestled in with the Columbine and Dianthus at the Westlake Ace Hardware at Pawnee and Seneca there are more than just blooms and leaves. Behind all the green there is a future family of ducks.
"She shows up early Spring and finds a home in our plants," says store manager Matt Stafford. "I'd seen her wandering around out here a few years ago, then, when I saw her actually make a nest it was kind of surprising."
For the past three years the mother mallard decided the best place for her nest would be the store's garden center.
