I gathered up the season's plums, peaches, nectarines, blueberries, apricots and cherry tomatoes for our altar, feeling great thankfulness for the mellowness of summer. My own harvest has been brought in and is being processed in Hong Kong, and I can take a pause and enjoy the richness of the season,http://growmama.blogspot.co.nz/2013/01/opening-flowers-holiday-activity.html
First everyone was given a paper flower to colour with crayons. As they coloured, I asked them to contemplate their hopes for the coming year.
May your hopes also flower, whatever season you are in.
Happy Lammas/Lugnasad/First Fruits!
