We have (to my knowledge) first time visitors to Jarmin Prairie (our home). The swans usually winter over in the Skagit River Valley (the next one to the South), but I have been noticing them increasingly in the Samish River Valley. Last year we had a sickly lone swan here until he died. But now this flock has showed up and is sticking around. I would think with our early spring like weather there would be many grazing options for them but maybe their populations are increasing to the point that they are exploring new areas. Regardless I am enjoying our new visitors and hope they enjoying their stay.
Here our seeds have arrived! We are using Abundant Life seeds instead of Territorial Seed because of their lack of a connection to Monsanto. It is a sure sign that spring is just around the corner when the seeds arrive. I have purchased new seed pots and potting soil. This may be premature, but I am excited!
