Swallow babies take flight

Another pic of our two baby swallows who were prematurely ousted from their nest when it came down in a wind storm. We made this ‘guest house’ for them where they were tended to by their mom for a few days and now they’re up and off, and attending flight school with all the other swallow babies. It was a satisfying moment as we watched them take to the air after two nights in their makeshift nest. It appears as though our cool days have come to an abrupt end. Clear blue skies this morning and quite hot already at 10am. It will be time to hay the meadows very soon now.
