Spring

The wheel of the year turns once more and as the equinox arrives. We reach balance between light and darkness, on the 20th. Ostara represents the first day of spring. Mother Earth awakens from her winters sleep and new life springs forth once more. We are surrounded by the energy of renewal and rebirth, transformation and healing.

My children love springtime. Every day there is a wonderful new discovery. Buds on trees, blossom busting in to life, baby birds and new flowers. These all help our children to see the cycles of life, to feel the earth breathing

This season is full of some of our favorite festivals painting bulbs, painting eggs, welcoming butterflies and dancing around the May Pole.
