The Circle

The magick circle may be fashioned with garlands of flowers sacred to the Goddess and God.

Alternately, flowers can be scattered around the perimeter of the circle. The point stones may be ringed with fresh flowers and herbs suitable to the elements, such as:
North: Corn, cypress, fern, honeysuckle, wheat, vervain
East: Acacia, bergamot, clover, dandelion, lavender, lemongrass, mint, mistletoe, parsley, pine
South: Basil, carnation, cedar, chrysanthemum, dill, ginger, heliotrope, holly, juniper, marigold, peppermint
West: Apple blossoms, lemon balm, camellia, catnip, daffodil, elder, gardenia, grape, heather, hibiscus, jasmine, orchid

Fresh flowers may be present on the altar or, if none are available, greens such as ferns may be used.

When casting the circle around a tree, you can use the fruit, leaves, nuts or flowers of that tree to mark out the circle, if desired.

All of these can be used in addition to the cord and stones.
