As more and more people follow this blog and the Bealtaine Cottage YouTube channel, one thing is evident.

We are here on this beautiful planet for a very short time.

  1. Here in Wisconsin we are having a cold, snowy March when just last year it was warm. I love the pic’s of your garden it is getting me through this.
    Bright Blessings from all at Bealtaine Cottage,

  2. Congratulations on reaching out to so many Colette.
    Whenever I feel stressed or needing peace, I log into your lovely blog and re-read your inspirational posts. An hour of that and a nice cuppa always gets me thinking of things I can be doing to simplify my life and lessen my impact on the Earth.
    I’ve ordered some free seeds that will be plenty for me and enough to share with my neighbour and I’m waiting for the rain to ease off so I can get the ground ready for the spuds and onions.
    Happy days.
    Best wishes to you all at Bealtaine x
    Thank you Kayte…it’s good to be appreciated! There is also a Bealtaine Cottage channel on YouTube and that is becoming quite popular too…sowing, sowing, sowing, isn’t it great to be back in Springtime!
    Bright Blessings from all at Bealtaine Cottage,

  3. Congratulations! And I think you are quite right. The Awakening is happening! I just hope we are in time. 300,000 visitors! You are definitely getting the word out! And thank you for that. Patti
    The 3rd month of the 13th year of the New Millenium and 300,000 on the counter…now, what is it about 3 I wonder? Some kind of synchronicity… We are not too late, but just in time I think!
    Blessings from Bealtaine Cottage
