Swan Island

I call this Swan Island because we normally can’t cross the bridge to this little island on account of the swans liking to nest there and we’re so used to  them guarding it  that we usually don’t venture near. On this day however we knew the swans were distant and their cygnets well-grown so we dared to cross the bridge.

  1. This is a lovely island with such a nice pond. The first and last images are lovely with the foreground flowers. It’s amusing to see that your rhododendrons are budded and blooming while ours have their leaves curled against the surprising cold we are receiving.

    1. The latest things to come into blossom here are the hawthorns. One just up the road from us is the most vivid red/maroon colour we’ve seen, really stunning! Hope you’re managing to stay cosy in spite of the cold.
