The Apple Tree
|Blossoms on my apple tree|
The Apple itself when cut often has a star in the middle making it popular with witches. Avalon was called the ‘Apple Isle’, the place of legend. Apples are a sacred fruit, a ritual item to be used in Harvest rituals to thank the Gods for their bounty. Whatever your opinion on this humble fruit, it is a very powerful tool (and delicious in pie).
