With frost filled mornings, more snow forecast and chilly evenings, Spring still seems so far away and yet those brave little buds pushing through the cold earth in my garden, tell me different.
First snowdrops spotted, last Thursday, promise Spring is not too far away.
The sun is gaining strength, days are slowly growing longer and the seeds are stirring.
We breathe deep, the new freshness in the air.
And so we celebrate with song, dance and ritual, encouraging Mother Earth to awaken again.
We light candles to match the spark of life, just beginning again in the ground.
Filling ourselves with this new energy.
