How to Move a Swan!

The final days of “swanning” were long and arduous, day became night and night became day, I was losing sight of reality, I wondered if there was life outside my shed!

I emerged hungry and tired, in need of refreshment…

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

A  name has chosen by my sponsor – “Odile” – The Black Swan from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. At first I thought the name was inappropriate as she isn’t wholly a black swan, but when jogging my memory about the story of Swan Lake, I realised that it was a really good name. Odile is the evil twin of the white swan “Odette” and during the ballet she disguises herself as her sister. It’s as if my swan Odile is morphing into Odette!

Here are some pictures of Odile in my garden:

Here’s a video I made earlier called “How to Move a Swan!”

Come back soon when I post some more photos of her in Wells Market Square.
