“Rain hangs about the place, like a friendly ghost. If it’s not coming down in delicate droplets, then it’s in buckets; and if neither, it tends to lurk suspiciously in the atmosphere.” ~ Barbara Acton-Bond

Air and Water – Requiring both air and water are these beautiful swans, seen here diving for breakfast and later spotted waiting with a selection of ducks for the titbits offered by humans.


Fire – My multi-fuel burner keeping me warm during the winter months.
