apple tree wassailing, this saturday (5th jan) 6pm stanmer park, at the orchard, kinda beyond the church, mummers and permaculture etc reinvented thing… was fun last year, stumbling about in the dark bashing pots and pans, a cacophany to wake the tree spirits, climbing an apple tree beneath the full moon (almost no moon this year tho!), bonfire, cider libations….

Old Apple tree, old apple tree;
We’ve come to wassail thee;
To bear and to bow apples enow;
Hats full, caps full, three bushel bags full;
Barn floors full and a little heap under the stairs

pic off internet by paul bommer, oh and apparently the middle farm ceilidh wassail isn’t on this year! shame
