The altar with candle that you can see is at Star child They change the decoration for each festival, this I think is from Imbolc? When you go into their shop the aroma of incense is a delight. In face for me that is one of the great things about most of the Glastonbury shops , they all have a wonderful smell to them. Hopefully these pictures have given an idea of the place we are. We return home tomorrow via Derby to see family. BTW I have done some sock knitting and proof can eb seen on the bed:))

Glastonbury, avalon of my heart
This may or may not be full of pictures, we will see what the wifi access is like:) Pictures from Glastonbury, the B&B Chalice Well etc. We are having the most marvellous time, the weather has been kind no rain at all. Mr Mog looks years younger, all the strain has disappeared from his face. He looks so relaxed and happy:) We haven't done a lot just browsed around, chilled and enjoyed every minute of it. The place we are staying is lovely and quite old. It is on wearyall hill which leads towards the Tor. Our room as you see has a 4 poster and it was rather lovely this morning waking up in a comfy bed looking out over gardens and fields with blossom on the trees. 4 hours away from our home and as you can see from the pictures Spring is well on her way. The food is great, many choices from breakfast and proper linen tablecloth and napkins. Like going back to an earlier age. We will definately stay here again after Mr Mogs treatment is finished.
Most of the pictures are from Chalice Well which has an ancient spring that is supposed to be a healing spring. We certainly think so and that was one reason for coming here so that Mr Mog could drink the waters to help his treatment. As you can see from the pictures it is full of iron, tastes ok though:) The gardens always look stunning and today was no exception. Lots of colour and an unbelievable amount of mistloetoe growing everywhere. There were 2 pieces fallen on the floor under the tree so I brought them home, a gift from the Goddess accepted with thanks:) Not many pictures of the Tor but if you click on the links that follow you can get better ideas of the place. For us Glastonbury is a very special place, magical, mysterious and very welcoming.
