Spring is Coming

Today represents the midpoint between Winter Solstice and Vernal Equinox, also called a cross-quarter day. As a holiday, it’s known as Imbolc or Imbolg.

This is the real beginning of spring. Winter’s grip is loosening once again: the days are noticeably longer and the sun gains strength. Our California hills are green and new. Lambing season has begun. There’s a stirring in the blood and sap, we’re starting to awaken after the winter’s slow darkness.

I and other gardeners I know are starting to plan and get itchy fingers; we want to plant, but it’s not time yet. Still, we feel it moving within us.

And the Year Wheel rolls on.
