Avebury (Circle henge)

Graffiti Again

I was at Avebury this morning for my Beltane visit and saw these chalkings on the Stones, can't see any good purpose in it.

Wearyall Hill (Sacred Hill)

Glastonbury Thorn

Just been up to the Thorn Stump and was delighted to see that nature is at work. There is a shoot starting to grow. Will submit a picture.

This picture was taken on a very cold day on Aarhus Strand in Denmark.

I was brought up at Lundin Links in Fife so standing stones have always been in my life. My mother was a freelance reporter for the old Weekly Scotsman and she searched out any thing she could about ancient Scot/pictland, we of course went searching with her.
We moved to Cornwall and found as many stones there and because we were Scots were immediately part of the community.

I now live in Bristol a good centre for archive study and from here easy access via m-ways to all areas. What a great hobby, you never get bored-only cold and very wet.
