  12. Thank you for your lovely burning swan. I actually found something to say about it this week. Sometimes, i can just admire it, but my brain does not fire a single cylinder. This time, I got a cylinder. Not all of them, but at least one 🙂 So thanks for putting in all this effort and making a great challenge.

    Amazing photo — guess swans made me think of Stratford-on-Avon, hence doggerel verse.

    What a fabulous image! I’ve never participated in your prompts, but I saw this one on someone else’s blog and it really inspired me. You were right in your earlier comment, this was a gold mine (pun intended) for my fantasy world! Catch me up, are you the photographer? (Or put another way, who should I credit the photo to?)

    Hi Sue

    Hope my post is not late for the prompt deadline. Just a spontaneous out pour, that I’m sure, has errors. But here it is…
