Beltain/ May Day 2012

A late post again, like our Spring, I feel too busy living to post sometimes!

So... was there much dancing round Maypoles, jumping through fires and unbridled merrymaking for Beltain where you are on our wonderful planet?
I'd love to see your celebrations


Here, for many reasons, it was a quiet celebration with fire, food, music, meditation and gratitude. 
New life is everywhere, lambs in the fields behind, leaves and blossom all around and the air is filled with busy birds mating, nesting and singing.
So early this morning, before the Bank Holiday crowds arrived, Berry (my little terrier) and I walked through Hamsterley Forest, have a photo stroll with us!
The gorse lined path from Bedburn
Glorious!





this reflective face 
wood anemones 

the music of this waterfall


The Green Man looking particularly virile this morning!


forest blossoms



Bluebells promises!










fresh red growth among the glaucous greens
where the wild primroses grow

 a field full of cowslips provided a fanfare on our way home.....


Happy May everyone

Love and Light 
Lindsey
