Blessed Ostara!

And it was indeed! It was perfect equinox weather... sunny, beautiful, raining cats and dogs, and then, just around midnight, a small blizzard kicked up, lasting about twenty minutes only to disappear without a trace.

And the herbs we planted last year are all happily showing their green. Valerian, mint , and others.


New life, new beginnings. The outward spiral that began its process at Yule, is now in full swing. It's beautiful. The lengthening days, the stirrings of life. Such a joyous time.
