Welcoming May

Beltane came and brought with it the electricity and warmth of my soul that I've come to expect. I left my tithe to the forest, along with some pretty stones for the fae and beer for the goblins who live here. The entire day was low key, calm and perfect as it was exactly what my spirit needed.



From the dewy dawn, pink from the sun's kisses and heralded in by the buzzing of bumbles and calls of many birds,




through the afternoon which lingered heavy and hot as we worked in the garden and lawn, to the twinkling stars dancing in the navy blue sky overhead as we lit our first fire in our home;



Does anyone else see the woman in the fire?


Peaceful, perfect and renewing.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, celebrated the first of May, loved much and laughed even more. Beltane Blessings (a wee bit late) to you.

  1. Your yard looks so gorgeous. I'm a little jealous, and very jealous of your bonfire. I want to at least buy one of the contained fire pits, but haven't yet. *sigh*
    Blessings.

    But I'm glad you got it done in time to light for Beltane. Tell me... Did you jump it? I know you were going to practice... =D

  4. Beltane greetings to you :)

    I see a womans face in the fire but she seems to be in pain. I also see a very calm & serene looking lion face on gazing in the opposite direction..

  11. Belated Betane blessing to you too! Beautiful photos, as ever Danni. And you found a four lead clover - excellent! Also, I don't see the woman in the fire but I do see two faces. In fact I'd say you could look at that photo all day and see more and more things...

  16. Hi Danni! I've been gone for a couple of months...just posted on my blog this morning. What beautiful pictures....and I am so very jealous of your bonfire! My spirit is in need of rejuvenation....it's gotten lost somewhere....and I'm not sure how to go about finding it....and waking it up. It is good to be back in blogland and visiting my friends! I have a lot of catching up to do.
