Spring is here!

There's lots of ways I know spring has arrived at my home:
     - gravel trucks start running at 6:00 am
     - redwing blackbirds show up at the feeder
     - tulips, iris reticlulata and snow drops are up
but best of all, the swans return to the pond!  You'll have to zoom up on the photo -- they are the white blur in the lower left corner:
They stay for 3 - 4 days, and then fly off.  They have been coming to the pond for 5 years now.  When they are on the pond, nothing else is.  No Canada geese, no ducks.  I know they've left when i start hearing the geese.
