…on Valentine’s Day.
With love from the Ludlow swans
I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling. View all posts by Heyjude

That is fantastic Jude. What a great eye you have.
I was watching them for some time, so nice to see the parents raise 5 young. When these two started mock fighting/courting I was hoping for the classic heart shape to appear. And then it did!
What a beautiful photo Jude…I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day. I had my boys home this weekend for my mother’s 80th birthday (can’t believe it, she doesn’t look or act it!!) so I made heart shaped pancakes on Sunday for brunch 🙂 ❤
Sounds as though you had a lovely day with all the family Sherri. Happy birthday to your Mom, glad to know she is enjoying life ❤
Thank you Jude 🙂
Oh that’s just lovely Jude!!
I have a soft spot for ‘my’ swans and have been delighted to see the parents have raised 5 cygnets this year.
That’s a great brood!! I’m still feeling very sad for the lonely black swan at Claremont 😦 It won’t be long before we see the first ducklings now. I must keep my eyes on the swan pair on the canal nearby 🙂
He needs to pop along to Frensham Ponds where there are (or at least were) several black swans 🙂
Oh I didn’t know there were any there! I had been thinking of talking to the people in Dawlish who look after the waterfowl there as they have a number of black swans. Apparently they’re very very picky about choosing mates which is one reason Claremont haven’t brought another in.
You’ll be saying goodbye soon 😦
I know. It’s kinda scary… I have got very used to this little town. Gulp!
Well, that’s just clever. I’ll even tolerate Valentine’s Day for a shot like that.
Ah, another conscientious objector! I am more than happy to find hearts in nature.
We don’t even exchange gifts or cards for our anniversary (but we do usually go out for dinner). Valentine’s Day is just another day.
