Here is a Rogation mug for Rogation Sunday.
Never heard of it? Well, as a kid in the village choir we used to carry an old plough, painted and cleaned every year, into the church where it would be left in the aisle during the service and then get blessed by the vicar.
This is symbolic of blessing the land and the farmers, workers and the potential crops that all come from the land.
Quite appropriate as I now keep bees, and they are a massively important part of farming, helping to pollinate the crops. Not just honey bees, Bumble bees too!
So, here is a Rogation Mug. They vary massively, but this is one of at least two that will be for sale at Bibury Antiques Fair on May 6th!
Hope you like it! Regards, Andy.
