GOG's impromtu apple tree mini-wassail.

After the Yemaya ritual, several of us sang to our little grove apple tree and toasted it with toast and banged pots and pans to inspire it to grow and eventually someday produce apples. This tree grew from a seed Nora found sprouting inside an apple after our beach ritual to Manannan in November.

When we were done at the beach we went to eat on the boardwalk. As we were eating, the surly guy behind the counter hauled out a crate of apples and said, "Hey, anybody want some free apples?" Thinking of Manannan's silver bough, and of the Isle of Apples, we each ate an omen. Nora found a seed that had sprouted in her apple, and now it's a little growing Manannan tree.
