Finally, in order to deepen our understanding of water’s manifold being, let us dwell for a moment on two other remarkable features. The first is the sensitive way in which it reflects Nature’s moods and co-operates with them. As examples we may take a slow-moving stream or river in midsummer, the surface of a lake on a clear still night, or the fury of the sea during a storm. The second is the enormous power which water can amass when it collects or is collected in bulk. Under control behind a dam it can give us electricity, but the surging joy with which it escapes from the turbines is an indication of the frustration which it felt at being pent up against its natural tendency to flow, a frustration which it vents in terrifying fashion if the dam should chance to break.

In the Western world we demand it as a right and expect to get as much as we want in the cheapest possible way; when we have used and fouled it, we expect it to be removed again in the cheapest possible way. It is treated like any other common dead substance without worrying about its wider functions in the biosphere. And yet water comprises a very large proportion of the weight of every living creature. It is high time that we tried to recover a fuller recognition of its importance, to live more with it, to appreciate its qualities and consciously to work with it.

He emphasised that he was speaking from his personal experience on small peasant farms, and he did not mention gardens at all. Moreover when he spoke of seasons he referred specifically to those which prevail in a continental climate. Dr E. Pfeiffer, Erica Riese, Maria Thun and others have made many useful words out of the new alphabet, words applicable to gardens, but again under continental conditions. But the insular climate and many of the soil types of Great Britain are not quite the same as those on the continents of Europe and North America, nor have we been fortunate enough to have had anything approaching a research station with workers devoted to the making of British words.
