The day has been soft and the sun has shone through the increasing canopy of trees casting an early Lughnasadh dapple light upon the lower reaches of Bealtaine Woods.
I have worked clearing the gravel of its new growth and even tidied up the rustic beds to the front of the cottage.
Between work I walked. I walked down along the road with Jack and in a more easy way I walked the land. Old growth pollarded Willow was beginning to lose its fight for the light as trees like the Oak and Lime shielded out the sun from above.
I hadn’t realised just how much of my joy had been missing until I made the decision to renew my relationship with this website! Yes! I can at last comment and engage to my heart’s desire with so many wonderful people…and feel safe in my home at the same time!
I made my way along the path towards the Stone Circle, with signs of Lughnasadh beneath my feet.
This is a very narrow path that opens out into the Stone Circle…
It was in this south east corner of the land where I had my first encounter with the Sidhe many years ago. This corner has always held mystery and where I constructed the Stone Circle of Thirteen as an appeasement to what I had previously disturbed.
As the evening light cast shadows, wisps of blue and white appeared quite suddenly inside the Stone Circle.
…and slowly disappeared.
This has never happened before…not in the sixteen years I have lovingly photographed this land.
Blessings to you all XXX Colette
