The grandchildren were particularly fond of this old man and he was quite willing to hang out and beg for a morsel or two of something tasty.
Swan Lake is one of our favorite parks and is home to eight species of swans. Other inhabitants of the park include the Canada Goose, myriad varieties of ducks, herons, turtles and fish. The park hosts an annual Iris festival. Camelias, Japanese tulip trees and a few other trees were blossoming. I love the eerie feel and shadows that the Cypress trees and Spanish Moss cast upon the black waters.
We are enjoying some lovely weather despite some terrific winds and a howling rainstorm or two. The grandchildren and I have some plans to build a fairy house or two on Friday...so do come back and take a look. Happy March Everyone!
