Trumpeter Swans

The Trumpeter Swans have hatched four chicks on our pond and I have been watching their progress. They are superb parents; every time I try to sneak up through the cattails for a look they are on me and herding the little ones out of view. I snapped this quick right before they disappeared into the weeds.

I will be participating in Tangle Town Garden's Garden and Art Tour on Saturday the 23 of July - everyone is invited! The event is from 9 - 4 and there will be a great party afterwards. This a wonderful chance to see some of Minneapolis' best gardens and art by local artists. The gardens will not be announced until the day of the tour ( to protect the owners from early birds, etc ?) , but I can say I will be in a lovely garden with lots of shade and ponds. The tour is a fundraiser with proceeds going to help fund public art and garden projects in the Twin Cities. I was invited to participate by Swan Song Gallery. For more information contact me or I hope to see you there!
