"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."

And I KNOW you were wondering about the Cygnets....well, here they are at FIVE weeks....



Mama Blanche suddenly lost one of her feathers.....and...I HAD to have it..  BUT...
