This is a short piece to update you all on Woden's Wald. The bluebells are really out now and the whole of the area at the top of the woodlands is covered with them.
Apple Trees & Bluebells
Herne's Oak by Woden's Hearg
This is another shot of Wulf's Burgh showing the mound and area around it covered with bluebells. At the moment it is impossible to do anything much to the site without harming the growth of these plants. But they will go down very quickly and at the same time the bracken that covered the area will grow though. June will be a very busy time because the bracken has to be cut back down in order to keep the area clear, or we are back to square one again!
Ingwe's Hearg is still covered with the grass but as you can see, without much rain, it is beginning to fade. We have had some rain since so there may be some improvement here, but in the long-term something else is needed as an altar in this area.
There is still plenty of wood in the wood-store and the A-Frame shelter is also stocked with wood, all ready for when we hold Folk-Moots this year, which we shall do during the next few months.
Because we have cut back our Area Folk-Moots over the past few years it has been my intention to hold more at Woden's Wald. We have already held a Midsummer Folk-Moot and Midwinter Folk-Moot last year and will do the same this year. However, I may well add a Winter Evennight Camp this year to bring this up again. These Folk-Moots are restricted to those in the South of England, and only those who have been involved for many years.
