We had a lovely celebration for the Summer Solstice on 22nd August. We made herbal bees wax balms and paper aeroplanes, there was a fun obstacle course and a delicious bring and share afternoon tea.
I also mowed a Labyrinth through the wild flowers of the Top Field based on a traditional pattern.
We have found mowing a couple of paths and a labyrinth into the meadow very useful. It allows visitors to go deep into the meadow and see the diversity of flowers and grasses without damaging them.
Here are just a couple of the flowers that can be seen from the Labyrinth:
Our next celebration will be for Lammas on the afternoon / evening of Friday 1st August. There will be more details to follow. I hope you will be able to join us!
