Welcome to Mrs Darley's Blog

This blogspot has been created especially for those who wish to share their ideas and thoughts about the natural world as the year turns and the ancient Pagan festivals that were once celebrated by our ancestors.

Poetry, prose craft work, ancient cure craft and general thoughts and feelings on how the change in the weather and seasons makes you feel are all encouraged and welcomed.

Mrs Darley was my once next door neighbour when I lived amongst the wilds of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall back in the early 1990's. Her charismatic ways and unending wisdom lead me on a journey of self discovery as I spiralled ever further into her magical world.

She has since become the central character in the 'Mrs Darley' series of books.

August skies

Lammas or Lughnasadh is past, although no doubt the corn God will continue to be sacrificed throughout the month, according to the weather and individual farming practices.
August however promises an interesting month in the skies, for although Thursday saw the full moon grace the heavens, we have another full moon this month, on the 31st. This is a rare and exciting event which only occurs approximately every 2 1/2 years and, according to Mrs Darley, has some fascinating yet rather disturbing folklore assocaited with it - but more of that nearer the time, although you can read about it in 'Mrs Darley's Moon Mysteries'.
On the 12-13th we are treated to one of the best meteor showers of the year - that of the Perseids, which produces up to 60 meteors an hour and is best viewed in the northeast after midnight.
All of this and a promise that the summer is due to return later this week - what more can we ask? Enjoy!
