Swans Quintuple!

Three and a half months ago I saw two swans on the lake behind my house for the first time in three summers. Now they've returned quintuply and with their cygnets (sign-its). They - like many other birds, muskrats, & beavers - favor this lake because it's shallow and food dense. Every time I walk by the window I can't help but become affixed to watching them.

Swan factoids:
Male swan - Cob
Female swan - Pen
Young swan - Cygnet
Group - Flock

Farmer's Market

Deanna took this photo of me on our way back from Meyer's Farmer's Market this morning. Those are carrot tops you see grazing my hair.
