Swans and Winter moving in . . .

The fall colours are gone now and we prepare for winter; gathering firewood, tarping equipment and hay stacks, generally battening down the hatches. We had a bit of snow on the meadow (about 6 inches) but it came and went. We expect to see winter settle in for real fairly soon. This past week we enjoyed a rare treat. A family of swans settled in on our creek for a few days. A pair of swans with their four signets. And not rare, but a treat none the less; one of our resident coyotes hunting for voles on the hay meadow.Life is good as we look forward to another winter wonderland on the meadow.
