Helen Swan was born at the Bonnet House. She was kept there as a companion to her father, after her mother died. As she grew thought, she started chasing the male swan out of the pond (All three ponds) Then she started chasing the visiting school children. She had to be removed. Was taken to Flamingo Gardens where she met another male swan with whom she bonded and had off- springs. This painting is from a photo taken at Flamingo Gardens when the two "lovers" first show each other.
