The Flame Haired Solstice Dreamer

Cold winter brings the Everfrost and jewels every tree
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
A flame~haired dreamer wanders there and shelters from the wind
And spins her dreams around the trees to break the ties that bind
She takes her thread and spins anew and how the Greenwood smiles
As she spins a spell for freedom and for her spirit Wylde

The dreamer finds an ancient oak and shelters in his lee
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
Tis summer now and birdsong weaves its magick through her spells
And humming bees drum drowsily in the foxglove's bells
The dreamer sits beneath the oak with yarn upon her knee
And spins and knits and weaves her dreams and sets her spirit free

"When birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people...shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. they will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow"

well i am back, we actually came home last friday but its taken me that long to slowly unpack, recover, move all my photos and recover some more.

so we packed up Pretty Pagan on the wednesday (complete with a for sale sign for the weekend!) hitched up Lilith and away we went in the sunshine.
we are lucky as we live within a 2 hour drive of avebury and it didn't take long, although setting up seemed to take forever.

the little original step to Lilith makes a good little table for my morning coffee.

on thursday we woke to very dark skies and high wind and despite the onset of torrential rain our friends started to arrive.
those who were lucky arrived before the rain, moongazy may another little folding caravan arrived and set up as our neighbours before the rain started but once the rain started there was no let up and those with tents took shelter in either Lilith or Moongazy May where they were given tea and biscuits.
finally as the day started to darken the rain eased off a little and we all realised that if we didn't get tents up people would have nowhere to sleep so it was all hands to the pump to get peoples homes set up.

after a gusty, wet night i woke to stillness and birdsong and opened the door to Lilith

the promise of a beautiful day!

and so it started

Lilith and Moongazy May

Solstice Cafe

kilts were a popular item of clothing

on the night we didn't have the big camp fire we set up assorted fire pits 

this was very moreish

toasting of giant marshmallows then led to marshmallows dipped in nutella, strawberries dipped in nutella and fluff

the lake was just behind us and i took some time to enjoy the sun and hope the ducklings would come close

of course staying near avebury means a trip to glastonbury...
