Mrs g the neighbours ones are not as verd predicted wild swan although they do have shading on the rear of the petals def not wild swan!!! Plus one was slug food under the plum tree the other is doing great...... I have planted my swan under the ornamental cherry quite shady but I feel she will( only something so georgeous could be a woman!!!!!) like it there although the winter may try her.... All this baby talk is making me broody!! My lo keeps asking if she's going to have a sister or brother ( no never can't have anymore at risk of tumour feeding on the growth hormones again!!) I was in for 4 days b4 birth ( induction) then 6 days after that.....
