Equinox was a magical day, spent in the beautiful woodland around Lough Meelagh, about three miles from Bealtaine Cottage.
Equinox is always a special time, with day and night perfectly in balance, a time to enjoy the last long stretch of day before time moves inexorably towards the dark.
This is a Bog Oak sculpture by the Lough…beautiful, isn’t it?
Herons are widespread in this region, with many visiting the ponds at Bealtaine Cottage.
Pathways wind and snake their way into the depths of the woods, where an ancient Court Tomb, from the Neolithic period, is hidden among the old, tall trees.
Ancient trees stand sentry around the Court Tomb, laid out in the shape of the womb of the Goddess.
This magical place of my Celtic ancestors.
One is in awe of the beauty of this sacred place.
Fairies abound in this ancient place…can you see them?
I wrapped my arms around this beautiful tree and inhaled the energy.
Breathtaking trees…looking up makes me feel dizzy!
Can you see the smiling Green Man within the tree?
Here’s another Green Man…
And every now and then a little path leads down to the water’s edge.
Wishing you all a Blessed Equinox…time to prepare to snuggle into the darker nights!
