So lovely to see the sun shining brightly in the garden. We have had a slow spring, in that it has been mostly cool, cloudy and rainy. Everyday I wait to feel that warm caressing air, and instead the chill in the breeze makes me scurry back in the house!
Raethan and I planted these forget-me-nots 6 springs ago, right after we moved into our house. We had a pack of seeds and sprinkled them around. Now these tiny blue flowers are springing up all over. Love them! The sun was a little bright, so I don't think you can see the true blue of the flower.
This little violet is a volunteer, perhaps placed by the Fae to welcome the spring. In the house I grew up in, we had a small hillside in the backyard that was covered with these tiny sweet plants. I am very fond of them, and hope they will proliferate!
Tulips in our yard. Every fall, we plant about a dozen or so tulips. The winters are hard here, and most tulips last only one or two seasons. They are a delight while they last though. (and sometimes our little "friends" the squirrels, dig them up and move them around. You will find tulips in the oddest places!)
Five Trees waiting for planting
Crab Apple blossom
Our project for this spring is the planting of these five trees: Red Maple, Weeping Willow, Pink Dogwood and two Crab Apple trees. I will dedicate each tree for a special magickal application.
If you would know strength and patience, welcome the company of trees.
