Over the last few years I have loved spending time in the Welsh borders and the Marches over early May Bank Holiday celebrating Beltane and the arrival of spring. This year I took the decision to teleport myself to those favourite places...

Beltane such a special time of year. Everyone’s way of celebrating is so different ... for years I used to go up Cerne Abbas Hill early in the morning where the Morris men would dance from the top of the giant down through the village .. so many beautiful memories of May 1st
