Litha Blessings!  )O(

Midsummer, Summer Solstice, Litha. Whatever you call it and whether you believe Fairies come a frolicking as portals open between worlds or just honour the longest day of the year as it marks a time of great abundance and beauty in nature, I wish you all a happy and sunny Summer Solstice! )O(

Into the Woods

I don’t function well in hot weather. Dappled sunlight and whispering trees call to me on hot days so we headed for the woods this weekend.


The scent of Elderflower filled the air and reminded me that I have not made cordial for at least two summers now. I think I may have missed my window of opportunity this year too but I’m not beating myself up about it. There is always Bottlegreen’s!


We found some wooden carvings among the trees. A beautiful Litha Goddess and a very contented looking Greenman!



They watched us as we wandered the paths, side stepping Nettle and Bramble, stopping every now and then to gaze at the beauty around us before we headed for home via the pub.
