Up slightly earlier today which was good. The kitchen got a thorough clean and disinfect and I read and did crosswords until my groceries arrived then sorted them out and put them away planning to have a sinful evening meal. Went into the garden yet again. More pruning and clearing the ground under the smoke bush. Feeling very pleased with myself although my leg is killing me, both the hip and the knee. But I don't care. It's such a pleasure to see one border looking tidy.
Went to the Pillars for milk and forgot to take my purse so had to go back for it. Stopped at the Palace back gate to see if I could photograph the aconites but the results were poor.
After I bought the milk I went to Birnie. The light was going but I had a short walk and photographed a swan. Not my finest hour but I liked the ripples.

Beautiful light on the ripples and the cause of them. I like the way the light fades to darkness and the shadow of the swan.

Enjoy your day Jean

A certain tranquil calm about the whole image Jean, I like the bow wave left by the swans gentle movement.

The light was perfect for this picture Jean. I love the warm light and the way it enhances the ripples. The swan is looking elegant as always, and its dark reflection is stunning!
I hope your leg is not so painful today. Take care.

I really like this Jean.............the light is very unusual, but absolutely gorgeous and I like the darkness at the top of the photo.

The swan itself is lovely and I love the ripples trailing behind it. A nice reflection too. Perfectly composed too.

I hope your hip and knee are behaving themselves better today!
