On the Seventh Day of Christmas …

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me –

Seven swans a swimming …

Nobody said the seven swans couldn’t include cygnets. Or that they had to be real swans. The silver swan is a nineteenth century automaton at The Bowes Museum, whose story you can read here.

I'm retired and living in North Yorkshire, where I walk as often as I can, write, volunteer, and travel as often as I can.

  1. I think cygnets definitely count, and any excuse to share that beautiful silver swan is welcome. I remember my father in law taking me to see it on an outing soon after I started coming to Newcastle with Chris!

  2. I do like swans and have a lot of photos of them including cygnets, white swans and black swans, but no silver swans. I’m thinking I should have chosen my photos more seriously now, but it was all done on a bit of a whim. Next year maybe.
