I’ve produced the following images to enhance the 16 blog posts that I’ve posted on the #AncientandSacredTrees website blog

#Woodlands & #Forests, have played a big part throughout my life, from my birth on a West Suffolk Farm (part of Lord Bristol’s Estate) through to my current retirement here in the North West of the UK.

Enjoying nature is the most wonderful feeling! As Sahir Hussain said…

It feels like someone whom I can never meet, listening to something I can never say!”

My posts have included the woodlands and forests along with nature that completes these wonderful environments.

My posts and the images connected with them…

The Celtic Tree Calendar

I’ve posted about the Celtic Tree Calendar, a Calendar with thirteen lunar divisions. These posts include the “Reed or Wheat-straw Moon, Elder Moon, Birch Moon, Rowan Moon and Ash Moon".

The Day of Creation

The Celtic Tree Calendar consists of... 13 months, each 28 days long, following the lunar cycle and one extra day representing the 23rd December, the ‘Day of Creation’.
