It's in the air, you can almost taste it... Spring is on it's way! I always know it's coming when the Spring Crocus pop their pretty little heads up through the garden mulch and burst into bloom! The only color around, they steal the show in brilliant shades of orange, yellow, purple and white. They make me smile every time! And then there are the Apricot blossoms; sweet white blooms bursting with fragrance, soon to be alive with the Song of Bees. It's the beginning of another beautiful season in the garden, and I will enjoy it fully! I hope you have a beautiful March everybody and, as I often say, see you in the garden!
February 2nd (2/2/22) marks the cross-quarter day between Winter and Spring in the Northern hemisphere (the opposite is true for the Southern hemisphere), and the Light is returning - finally! We still have 6 weeks of winter before Spring Equinox, but you can feel the change. Under the ground the roots are stirring; the trees are wiping their sleepy eyes as they bask in the warmth of a returning Sun. The Light is growing stronger everyday! The animals are feeling it too as the bird song grows in tempo each day. We are all awakening! May this beautiful season of Imbolc find you celebrating the turning of the seasons as the best is yet to come! Much love to you all!
