Duck In My Conservatory

Heard a sound. Thought: "That's odd. Sounds like a duck pissing about in my conservatory." Went to look. Turned out there was a duck pissing about in my conservatory.

"Duck in my Conservatory" sounds like the title of a Gerald Durrell book

I'm just a stupid american. what's a conservatory?

Holly said...

@T; a conservatory is a room that's neither outdoors nor indoors and is built by UK homeowners at great cost in order to be too hot in the summer, freeziing cold in the winter and to trap irate insects (or ducks). See, much clearer now.

Thank you, Holly. Couldn't have put it better myself.

The american equivalent would be an enclosed back porch, I'd say, although a conservatory usually has glass walls -and often a glass ceiling- not screened walls. Some are fair sized rooms, others more of a small lean to area between the house door and the conservatory door to the garden.
