Ellen Evert Hopman, teacher of Herbalism and Druidism for decades, is with me today discussing the Sacred Herbs of Spring, or more specifically the magical, healing and edible plants of Beltaine and the Fairy Folk.  We'll explore the significance of the May Day Festival and Beltaine, English May Day customs, how Beltain is observed outside the U.K. and how fairies fit into Beltain rituals.  We'll look at edible flowers of Spring, which are associated with Fairy lore, herbs of purification and protection, abundance and love.
