Down a dirt road, past fields and deep woods ~
stands a humble little farmhouse wearing chippy white paint and a rusty tin roof...
it's here at our beloved Notforgotten Farm that you will find me...

chasing kittens, puttering in the gardens or talking to the tree.

I love seeing the past through the eye of a needle ~
...I collect old & odd things.
I pull wool & cotton through linen. I walk barefoot in my garden and throw my head back and cackle when I laugh...

I'm just a little farm-witch that loves where I am & who I'm with ~

~ May Day & Beltane ~

~ Hello Friends & Folk ~

May 1st finds us digging in the garden, tidying up the compost ~
and celebrating the long awaited warmer temps, flowers and bright sunshine!

today you can dance in your garden, barefoot...
call to the faeries and fae to come and play!

gather your circle of friends and enjoy the peacefulness of the morning...

and if you didn't get the chance last night,
tonight light a fire in your outdoor-space 
and welcome the light of Spring and longer days ~

 A Blessed Beltane to you all and a very happy May Day!

Blessings from the Farm
 ~ Lori

May Day always brings sweet childhood memories...of school! We would make baskets of colorful construction paper and give them to our mothers who would then put a vase of flowers in it to adorn a special place. I always found the idea of the Maypole a lovely thought, too!

And Blessed Beltane to you.

Oh, those photos remind me of learning a Maypole dance at Primary School - those were the days (the late 1960s) - you wouldn't see it happening in an Australian school these days.
