Happy Imbolc!


These are the first snowdrops to bloom in my garden this year - and I took this photo of them just a couple of days ago.

The timing seems perfect as today is Imbolc - the pagan celebration of the start of spring, when flowers are just beginning to return after the winter and the first lambs are being born.

Thank the goddess the snowdrops are out. It feels like the warmth has drained out of the whole world. This reminds me that spring will come.
I wish everyone a happy Imbolc.
