Primrose...Flower Of The Fairies...
My primroses are blooming and they are the first bit of color in my garden so far this year. Did you know that primroses have long been considered fairy flowers in Ireland and Wales, where they are believed to grant fairies the power of invisibility? In some circles it is said that eating primroses is supposed to enable you to see the fairies. Hanging a spray of primroses on your door is an invitation for the fae to enter your home and to draw fairy blessings; but scattering primroses outside your door is said to keep fairies away by making a barrier that they cannot cross.
If you touch a fairy rock with a primrose posy that contains the right number of blossoms (five) it is said to open the way to Fairyland and fairy gifts. Be cautious though, for using a bouquet with the wrong number of flowers is said to bring certain doom. Plant primroses in your garden to attract fairies and be sure to take good care of them, for allowing them to languish or die is said to earn you the wrath of fairies.
You need a village, if only for the pleasure of leaving it. A village means that you are not alone, knowing that in the people, the trees, the earth, there is something that belongs to you, waiting for you when you are not there. ~Casare Pavese

My Sexton's Hail From Limerick
Never permit yourself to become the weak link in the chain of your generations.
Welcome! Please pour yourself a cup of tea and settle in and relax with me awhile. As you'll notice, I am captivated by ancient times, a soul misplaced in this modern day. I have a love for my ancestry and I believe people who grow up without a sense of how yesterday has affected today, are unlikely to have a strong sense of how today affects tomorrow.
