…My Flowers Are Waiting…

I went out late yesterday to water what remaining flowers there are in our yard. Garden-hose watering has been the norm this summer, although we’ve had more rain than some areas. 

Of course, I first had to get a picture of the (cloudy) sunset.

As I turned and headed toward the garden hose, I realized I had a visitor.

I hadn’t seen him, but apparently Groom Swan had been patiently waiting for me to come to the water’s edge to throw out some bread to him. And apparently,  he’d grown tired of waiting.

We walked along together back to the water, where it’s easier for him to eat the bread I toss to him.

The seagulls must have had scouts in the area, because they were soon vying for Groom Swan’s bread.

Soon the bread was gone, the seagulls flew away, and Groom Swan swam off into the sunset.

And I still had flowers to water.

  1. It is a amazing to me that no two sunset/sunrise pictures are ever the same. And Groom Swan is looking quite well fed 🙂 Cheers! MJ

  2. Oh Dianna, these photos are gorgeous! The colors of the sunset and reflections on the water are stunning. And of course, Groom Swan is so beautiful!

  3. Isn’t it nice to share your sunset with your Groom Swan? He had to wait for you to feed him treats and than had to share with those darn gulls!!!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous….the sunset AND the beautiful black swan. Hopefully those greedy seagulls didn’t get as much of that bread as Groom Swan did……:)
