Yesterday we had the pleasure of joining some old and new friends to dance the Maypole and make May baskets. The spring has teased us with a few warm days here and there and glimpses of sun. Just when I thought it was time to put on sandals and put the heavy coats away we get a week of gray days and Beltaine brought us wind.
It was crisp and fresh and had only a hint of sun here and there. But we gathered, we danced, we laughed and the kids ran and played. The adults made a tincture of spring's fertile energy, really it was just a lovely afternoon. I plan to put out some offerings and clean and refresh my altar. All the while preparing a handmade gift for a little girl friend and today I'm cleaning away. But more on all that to come. Blessings of Beltaine to you all.
