Never before have I been so acutely aware of the birth that spring brings forth each year. Out here in the ‘country’ we are surrounded by creation and procreation. Baby lambs, cows, swans and colts, deer (fawn?), rabbits, frogs. We have baby deer who live near our cottage who are too elusive to capture on film. But these happy swans live in the moat around the castle, so we get to see them interact every day.
