A few crocuses are blooming. Some tulips are up. A few of the star of Star of Bethlehem bulbs are up. The heather has bloomed most of the winter and it's flippin' soggy around here. The last couple of winters it's barely rained. We're working on over twelve inches for this month alone. That's almost a third of what we got for the whole year last year. Anyway, the Celtic winter quarter ends tonight.
Go with thanks and go with blessing, season of deep memory. Souls with joy are deeply freighted, hearts are charged with heritage. As ancestors you have traveled, You have come to Winter's home. Father Counsel, you have cheered us, Mother Wisdom, who has smiled, touch the hidden seed within us, may we grow as Springs own child.
