On Wednesday 21st June at 7pm, there was a small celebration to mark the Summer Solstice in Alexandra Park. This followed on from previous traditions of marking the seasons in the lovely Alexandra Park by a group of people who want to connect closer to the natural environment.
It was a lovely warm evening and symbols representing the Summer Solstice were placed in the middle of a tree which is said to be split across a path of ley lines. The area was the focus of a Dowsing Workshop which was held during the Summer Solstice Weekend in Alexandra Park in June 2015 which suggested that there are ley lines which run through the Alexandra Park area.
The floor of the park was also covered in a carpet of soft ‘cotton wool’ – like pollen which had been falling from the trees.
