-6C/+21F when I left my apartment, but when I came out on the street it felt like -20C/-4F, it was so nippy and cold – not at all nice and it was overcast. Felt much colder than the morning before. Had loads of warm clothing on but it went just through it all.
As always I take the short way to the clinic and that is by my park, the Swan park, sure it has a name. Have to google. The birds in and around the pond didn’t look very happy with the weather neither – they didn’t even come up to me to see if I had any bread, but it looked like they just been feed.
All the photos here is from that park visit. Not much going on … they were just swimming around, but there was some kerfuffle as I was leaving, between two male ducks. It carried on for a couple of minutes – no casualties. Manage to get a photo of the splashing.
Don’t know where the swans has gone – never the full family around anymore, was up looking in park too if they were there, but only one audult and one young swimming around – they had 6 chicks last year. A months ago it was only one around, a young one that did some dancing for me.
Don’t have a clue what those funny and cute plant here is called – sure somebody will tell me now – they look like old men faces with a beard and the little snow on – they looked like they were wearing a hat or cap. The park has two arches with them.
“Just because swans mate for life,
I don’t think its that big a deal.
First of all, if you’re a swan,
you’re probably not going to find a swan
that looks much better than the one you’ve got,
so why not mate for life?”
Of course my music cloud is from Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” Op.20, was composed in 1875–1876. It’s my favorite ballet of all. Don’t know how many times I seen it, let see; Gothenburg, New York, London, Cologne, Monte-Carlo, Copenhagen and Belfast = 7 times and every time it has been the same magic. This piece is the ” No.9 Finale (Andante)”
