Check out Haven Realty & Investments recent blog post about the Lake Morton Nesting Swans! Its a beautiful way to spend some time with friends or family in the beautiful outdoors! Right by Downtown Lakeland, its a beautiful spot to check out the City of Lakeland's Swans. There are also White Pelicans, Ducks, Geese, Ibis, as well as many other types of local birds. They are roped off and protected by City employees that patrol the lake daily due to theft issues in the past, as swan eggs can sell for as much as $150 each and a cygnet (hatchling swan) can fetch as much as $300.

Well, I tried telling you about it. I posted, it was on Facebook, my website, and the MLS. But you missed out. We had 5 showings and 5 offers. We are under contract and going before the judge on the 17th to see if we can get this sale approved!It'll be a long time before another opportunity to purchase a fixer-upper in Deer Brooke comes up. I tried and I'll try again next time!
