My Adopted Family

By SUE118
I quite like this idea of getting up late and being lazy, this week has done me good. My Swan family as you can see are nearly all grown up. Now down to 4 Cygnets, as I said previously I hope number 5 did fly away and not come to any harm. I wonder if they do know what I say and it's very nice that they recognize me and come straight over. I'm telling them to move back to Ornamental Lake where it will be nicer for them for Autumn and Winter. Here's hoping they understand. It's been a fantastic 6 months seeing them develop from little balls of fluff to grown Swans. They still have their baby noises but can hiss really loudly like their parents when a dog gets too close.
Have a great weekend and I'll catch with voting etc later.
Thanks for your support this week and taking time to view my images.

Sue. SmileSmileSmile
