Altar for Puanepsia 200673 viewsPuanepsia is a festival in honour of Bright Apollo at the time of the autumn fruit gathering. This is also the time of Oskhophoria, a festival celebrating the vine harvest. In addition to giving thanks for the year's harvest we seek a blessing on the seeds for the next season.

Anthesteria Altar73 viewsThe Anthestêria is a Festival of Flowers (Anthê) for Dionysos Anthios (also Antheus and Euanthês - Fair-flowering), the Blooming God. For, as Ovid (Fasti 5.345) says, "Bacchus loves flowers," which herald His arrival by their appearance in the spring.

This is the time when the fermentation of the wine is complete and the new wine is ready to drink, and so we make a first-fruit offering, but it is also the time when the vines are pruned in preparation for the next season. Therefore the Anthestêria is also the most important Festival of the Dead, for we appreciate the beauty and fruits of the Earth, the delights of wine, and indeed all pleasures, the most when we salute the Dead.

We honoured Dionysos with flowers, grapes, wine and a drinking contest! We poured more olive oil than ever before. The altar looked beautiful with flowers and ivy and grapes and offering bowls. This ritual was led by Via Baker.

Blessing Branches Puanepsia 200670 viewsWe made little blessing branches because it's a tradition in Greece to go from door to door giving out branches in return for beans as "payment". The branches are laurel, sacred to Apollo, and have charms on them. The charms on them are a bunch of grapes, a goblet and a harp - in honour of Apollo.

Spear of Destiny68 viewsFor our Lughnasadh ritual in 2006 we honoured the Irish all-skilled god Lugh, who carries a Spear of Destiny. In honour of Lugh we decorated our own spear with flowers and ribbons. Doreen Taylor was Druid in Charge of this ritual. Photo by Rebecca Alexander.

Samhain Crow66 viewsThis is the crow Kevin Taylor made for Samhain 2007. He came up with the pattern, we both used glue coated newspaper to cover it. Catriona gave her aesthetic opinions as we were making it. It had an opening at the top where people during the ritual could put notes to their beloved dead. The wings even moved up and down and were painted with blue and black luminescent paint! It was burned as an offering to the Morrighan during part of the ritual.
