About this custom

Flowers on doorstep and milk & butter left out on May Eve for the Good People.

We have welcomed in the summer since 2000 with wild flowers on a May bough. In the past we have also lit a bonfire in our garden to mark the start of summer. I feel we are continuing the old ways and carrying on the traditions of country people which connects us to nature and to the land.

When does this take place?

Since 2000 to date
