Down at the ponds I regularly visit the swan pair. I have shown them in some of my previous posts but recently I noticed that Mrs Swan appears to have flown away again. I'm not worried as she has come and gone in the past and even appeared with their 2 nearly fully grown cygnets last year.
What I have noticed is how friendly he has become. Now I say he but of course who am I to know which one has gone on holiday? For the purposes of this post I shall call him a he 😄
He has become quite tame and when you call to him he comes over.
I was also most surprised to hear that he makes a sort of low honking sound....I always thought that swans were mute? He most certainly isn't.
Far from the old wives' tale about them flapping wings and breaking arms ( have you ever honestly known anyone who that has happened to?)
he is really friendly.
"Good morning Jane" (or at least I think he said that to me) "would you like me to pose for some photos."
He took a bow
and then off he sailed again

Tomorrow is the Day of Love and yes I am a soppy romantic, I make no apologies for it. I am meeting my Hb when he finishes work, for a meal and we will be also celebrating 37 years of the day we got engaged. Gosh where did those years go...I'm still only 20 something aren't I? Also in the context of celebrations I thought you would all like to know that my dear friend Karen's Mum is making a slow but steady improvement. She defied all the predictions at the hospital and hung on to life. Such wonderful news. Karen and I would like to thank for you all the lovely good wishes you left on my post last week.
Enjoy the new week ahead, the sunshine is back here this morning after such a cold, dreary weekend's weather. I'm taking some more cards down to Dotty's later and I will say hello to Mr Swan as I pass.
Thanks so much for stopping by and for all you kind, supportive comments.
Bye for now,
