With love from the Ludlow swans


…on Valentine’s Day.

Published by


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.

    1. 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!

  1. 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 🙂 ❤

    1. 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 ❤

      1. 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 🙂

        1. 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.
