The new season of ‘eggs and seeds’ is upon us. Both eggs and seeds represent a promise of life….Spring will manifest. Today is the eve of St. Patrick’s Day. We are four days away from the official Spring Equinox of 2011. This time of year day and night are equal and balanced, but about to tip over on the side of light. We can really feel that now with daylight savings spring forward behind us. In many traditions, this is the start of the new year. Today on the farm we saw blue sky with warm, bright sunshine followed by black, thunderous clouds of torrential downpours. So, the weather seems right on track….Our daffodils are blooming nicely and the tulips are close to showing buds. Many of the deciduous shrubs are slowly leafing out tiny bits of green. Who does not love this time of year and to watch sleepy plants come back to life!
