Apple blossom

The apple tree in my garden is thick with white blossom and looks lovely, even though the day is rather grey.

On May Day, apple blossom is a sure sign of the return of summer and shows the fertility of the tree. Plenty of blossom will hopefully mean plenty of apples in the autumn.

If you have an apple tree in your garden, pluck a little of the blossom and add the petals to your bath for a sensual Beltane treat!
