Words and pictures: wassailing the orchard
Wassail!Be WellBe wholeBe merryFor January 17th, the old date of Twelfth Night, is the day we wassail the orchard, the orchard where the cider apple trees dwell. We take water, especially water drinking water as a given, but that has not always been; beer , wine and cider were once the drinks of choice because of often foul or contaminated water supplies.

Tom Conoboy's Writing Blog: The Watersons
