Yes, it’s spring. It’s warm, plus 12 degrees Celsius today. There still is a little snow here and there. Also there still is a thin layer of ice on the lake except for a small area in the southern end of it. The swans like to stay there. I know many already have seen the the Liverleaf in bloom. I saw my first ones today.
I happened to see this swan family when we were on the the way to the supermarket. Oh look, look I said. I want to shoot a couple of photos. Make a u-turn. There still is some ice on the lake but close to the shore there is water. After a while the young swan got curious and came towards me. Maybe he thought I had some kind of treats or so. After staring at me for a few seconds he returned to his parents.

The swans are back. They have been on the other side of the lake. I have been able to spot them like white dots but to hear them very well. On Tuesday (the day when Quam left us, I’m still very sad) when I came down to the beach they were here on this side, bobbing in the waves looking for food. When the other one was sticking his head in the other one kept his eyes on the surrounding, ready to warn if anything suspicious would occur.
