Me-Now-Views; Less Speak More Peek

Some left-overs from 'Bertie' and some left-overs from 'Alnwick' (but the Northumbrian travels are not yet done with. Not by a long shot...)

Yamini
the swan photos make them look so calm and gracefully...good job.
Mom has never been very close to swan but she is told they are anything but calm...don't like their territory invaded.
Hugs madi

Your white swans are so different to our black ones which have a much more slender neck. We do have a colony of white swans living in Northam WA and I believe they were introduced in the 20th if not the 19th century. It is a hot spot and yet they seem to thrive there.
Love all your wonderful picture and I wonder why one large tree would fall like that but then I believe pines are shallow rotted so why not? xx

We have quite a few trees turned over like this. I look at it as renewal, as the old make way for the saplings. You will love visiting are huge, old, white pines!
