Looking the opposite direction at Lake Eugenia from the swans we saw yesterday, you're looking at a confined shallower area beyond the causeway. For whatever reason they didn't clear the stumps in this part of the lake as completely as on the other side. Although they're all underwater in the summer, during the spring drawdown it's just a sea of stumps!
If I wasn't stuck in my wheelchair inside the car on a busy road I could spend all day photographing reflections here.
Meanwhile, back here at the ranch the warmth has encouraged the first flowers to bloom, tiny dwarf Iris in a brilliant royal blue. I loved these, the first spring flowers at our former home, so Mrs. F.G. ordered some bulbs and planted them last fall. Now I'll always have them to enjoy here too, They're in the small strip of scree garden right beside the front sidewalk where I can look down on them.
