Listening to Our Ancestors

A new project for a new year. The plan is to explore working out of doors and to research the age old festivals and rituals that marked the events of the farming year. It started off with Plough Monday, the return to work after the Yule festival. Traditionally this was when the ploughing began. Here the ground is still very wet though the birds are singing again and the days are getting brighter.
