Our Swans & Stanley Spencer 1891-1959

Stanley Spencer (English artist, 1891-1959) Swan Upping at Cookham c 1915-19

Nearly daily for the past 10 years, we have driven by a farm pond which was home to a pair of beautiful white swans & their offspring.  Last summer, the swans disappeared, and the farm house, barn, & all outbuildings were razed.  Now no swans, no offspring this year as we drive by.  Heartbreaking.  Here are a few of Spencer's more spiritual swans...
