on franklin pond

I feel so fortunate to have this view from my backyard while still living in a subdivision. Franklin Pond is home to a pair of mating swans who have at least 4-6 cygnets each year. I love to sit out back with my glass of wine and listen to all the peaceful sounds of nature.

The duo have the most lovely call that echoes beautifully across the water...however, it's not so calming when they have their lovers quarrel in the early hours!! He's probably telling her she's got too much grass in the nest or something hehehhe.

This is the first May 2~4 long weekend I can remember where we all haven't been rained out!! I hope this is the beginning to an amazing week. Hope it's shining where you are!
