"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

Animal Thursday....and first Rhode Island Photos

Yes, I know....I am late - again - BUT - this time, I had an excellent excuse...
I was flying across the country!

Some of you already know how much I love Swans....I was thrilled to *meet* this flotilla of Parent-Swans and their Grey, still-fuzzy Cygnets.

You can see why I have fallen in love with Rhode Island.......

Here are a few other reasons....

The *Princess* of Rhode Island....the beautiful - BLISS.

Emma, spunky, loving, and ....the *Squirrel Huntess* SUPREME!
To say I had a *wonderful* time with Lo, Brian, Bliss and Emma would be the understatement of all time.  Gracious, caring hosts... I felt like I was *home* visiting family.....  I already miss all four......
More to come soon......  stay tuned....IF you can gain entry to my blog!
