For once a quiet and cool sunday, without any social commitment, with time to dedicate to one another, and also for once in days, sun is shining. Today is summer day one. We go on a trip with children bikes to a park close to our house, once there we trod along the big water pond while kids bike around, usually 50 meters ahead and waiting for us to rejoin them to carry on. Small loops inside a big one.

From behind the fence, football player shoutings seem to come from very far, as we hike silently along the pond banks. On the lawn that borders the small road, grey and yellow remains of mowed grass are stuck to nearest blossoming bushes. Close to the airport as we are, every four minutes a plane crosses silently the sky above our heads, sometimes with their landing wheels already out.

Following a blackbird, finding out by chance another pond, quieter than the first, where waterbirds are nesting. And as I walk along, suddenly I stop walking and even breathing. A whole swan family sits on the bank five meters from me. The cygnets are gathered close to one another, white and fluffy, while one adult sleeps standing and the other watches around. A very quiet place indeed.

packed as in a nest
impatient fluffy cygnets
summer bathings ah

All along the way around the pond, many signs confirm summer is here. Although last week weather was rather dull, cold and rainy, tree branches are loaded with unripe but already big fruits, birdlings are singing everywhere, and as soon as sun got out of this morning cloudy blanket, heat comes at once.
