1 Swan a-swimming
I just had to mention that there is a beautiful swan...yes, a swan that has chosen one of our nearby ponds for his summer residence. We spotted him (or her) for the first time on Sunday. The swan is beautiful...such a brilliant white with a beautifully graceful neck. The kids have affectionately named the swan, Louie, after the swan in E.B. White's, The Trumpet of the Swan. We're hoping Louie has a mate that is nesting nearby so we can see a nice flock of cygnets soon. There is so much wildlife around in our neighborhood. It's almost difficult to stay home and get work done!
