A pre-Beltane walk

When I was going for a walk on the 30th of April, I was quite struck by the fact that something profound was changing!

Then it hit me: it was the small of the air! Until then, there had been changes of temperature, colours changing etc. but what was missing huntil then was the delicte perfume of blossoming trees and bushes!

Everywhere I looked there were buds, blossoms, opening petals…

What a beautiful world around us!



Today, the sun came out and  the world changed!  There were so many blossoms on bushes and trees, opening delicate and fresh leaves and this distinct pre-summer perfume hanging in the air. What a change from the cold and grey days behind us… When I picked up all the different scents, I only noticed how much I had missed them over winter. Tonight we step into the Celtic summer, Beltane is here! A time for buds and blossoms and a promise of fruit to come. I am looking forward to this season with anticipation and curiosity and a little bit of excited flutters in my tummy. What is growing in and around me?
