The Long Lost Sun
Britannia stands along England's coastline and welcomes the sun, with a disgarded umbrella at her side. The sun smiles back at her . Two of the sun's rays are hands, and the sun is reaching out to join hands with Britannia. After a very wet spring and summer, the sun returns. In time to save the essential corn crop, as well as the more luxurious strawberries.
