Crannog and Catkins

Someone??? has put the flag back on the crannog remains (an old iron age safe island). Despite all the snow melt and flooding after Easter, the loch levels are really low again. We haven't been able to see the crannog for ages.

All the willow catkins are coming out too. You can hang a catkin shoot in your house for a good health charm, or make a wish with a willow. Ask for permission from the sacred tree first, then tie a knot in a shoot whilst making your wish. Keep it with you until your wish is granted where you must return with the shoot, untie the knot and thank the willow by leaving a gift. Alternatively, use willow for 'the original magic wand', or sit amongst willow for inspiration. :-)
