Cowart's Common Room
This morning...

the blue blue sky welcomed me and when I had put the right shoes on to get the horses out into the field, what did my eyes catch???

THE FIRST SWALLOW HAS ARRIVED IN THE BAYOU!!!

I was so excited and the little bird was even flying several times over my head as if it was welcoming me too.
The whole day, I have been happy and singing and hopping round and admiring the new born nature. That very feeling like "Today is future's beginning"

By end of the week I'll get the wee black stallion out for a tour to Hamburg and Berlin. And they forecast good, sunny, dry weather.

Shall see how long it will take until you report the first swallow in your area

Very Happy

Withy Brook's Avatar A wonderful harbinger of summer. I am afraid we will not see our friends back until the end of April.

Westerwitch's Avatar Oh how lovely - think it will be a while yet for us. But the forecast - weather wise is good.

Re:
Ivy's Avatar Bayou they are forecasting 17 C for Thursday in the Hamburg area so that will make it one or two degrees warmer in Berlin, don't forget to bring your t-shirtsSmile Have not seen any swallows yet but with the warmer weather ?? but I must say we had frost last night!

Re:
Boudicca23's Avatar I always keep an eye out for the swallows and blogged about it on my allotment blog when they arrived last year, wasn't until early May if I remember rightly, but they're my favourite birds so my heart always leaps with joy when I see the first one! Where exactly in the world are you, Ms Bayou?

Re:
Boudicca23's Avatar Ah, okay, just checked your blog, you're in Belgium. It will, as you say, be interesting to see how long they take to reach me in south east England. Will keep you posted!
