Here in the Rocky Mountain foothills, the ground is bursting with bright yellow forsythia, spiky poppy leaves, bold dandelions, shy succulents, hardy arugula and kale, downy mullein, and small tender shoots that I do not recognize. Spring is finally here!
The spring equinox is a time for flowers, for celebration of fertility and renewal: the Earth's and our own. Eat and paint eggs (Easter traditions stemmed from the pagan Ostara, the spring celebration), decorate with fresh flowers, take a walk outside & welcome the new life.
Now is the time to nurture your budding self.
And while you're at it, send a little love Nature's way - she's working hard to bring us all these beautiful blooms.
