Artist's Description

Elder trees are common all over the island. They are often found along the sides of the island’s disused railway lines.

In Manx, elder trees are known as “Tramman”. In folkore, it was said that fairies swung in the branches of elder trees, causing them to sway.

Elder flowers are a natural source of yeast, making them popular for making home-brewed wine.
