|Description ||I visited Fernworthy Stone Circle (sometimes referred to as Froggymead) two days after Halloween and found these sweet little offerings(?) in the middle of the circle. |
The very pretty pebble was painted on all sides.
| That either says something about the honesty of other visitors, or that there haven't been many! Looks pretty soggy there too... libation or rain?? ;-)|
| So much rain!! :-) I do hope no one minds me submiting this picture. I personally find it fancinating how we all act at megalithic sites, where we stand, what we explore etc. And although I do not think the circle builders left things like these, I wonder what they may have left as offerings or gifts...|
| The first time I came here with Angie we got a through drenching.|
| I forgot that Hamish. When I recall us visiting the circle together, the time we got lost in the forest and arrived there in moonlight always comes to mind!|
| Matt, I agree with you about being interested in how people use/d a site. There is quite a lot here, but I expect several people were involved. None of it is offensive, the pebble is lovely, and the inclusion of the apple reminds me of a harvest festival. (I bet that one's gone by now.) It all looks as if it was laid down with love and respect for the circle and everything around it. I'd rather see this any day than a litter-strewn high street.|
Wouldn't it be lovely to be a fly-on-the-wall when the ancestors were using these sites? I've no idea what they might have put down, though I'd guess it was to do with crops and fertility.
