May 1st, Beltane, a cross-quarter turning in the wheel of the year.    On a short hike on this season between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice,  note the Camas Lilies, Wapato, are blooming blue lavender along waterways along with Bluebells, Buttercups, Trillium, wildflowers of spring.   A Yellow-rumped Warbler makes an appearance in Hawthorn and old apple trees. Then flashes of yellow with Common Yellowthroat, Yellow-breasted Chat, American Goldfinch.   Bald Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks, and Turkey Vultures, circle over the meadow.   Columbian White-tailed Deer stand still almost unseen as a Townsend Chipmunk calls out, slips between a decaying log and Sword Fern.  Great Egret flies along the creek banks.   

What gifts are you bringing to this season?  Who is accompanying you?  How are you supporting yourself on the woodland path of spring to summer?
