Wishing Wells

Such a fantastic response to  Crimson’s Creative Challenge this week has inspired me to share a couple of photos dating back 20 yrs (pre-digi, point&click camera, terrible quality). They were taken at Swallowhead Springs, source of the Kennet river in Wiltshire, near the mystical Avebury Circle and Silbury Hill.

My daughter, surrounded by prayers: Sept 2004

It was a windy day. An ancient willow guards the springs. Tokens of every kind accompany the prayers: candles, slips of fabric and paper, photos, even a carrier bag!

Sept 2004

    Willows are such magical trees. I’m not surprised they have so many traditions attached to them.

    Still full of memory though, I suspect.
