This is my batch of Bloodroot in my Faerie Garden,
They usually come up even before the Trillium, close to the ground, sweet little
flowers, I can't wait to see them,
Ostara, Spring, What do you think of?
I actually think of how I need to do "spring cleaning"" in my house as
well as my spirit. A time to renew, contemplate.......
Preparing for the Vernal Equinox, usually around March 20.
The first day of Spring!!!!
I think about the return of Persephone, reunited with the Mother Goddess, of the earth,
signifying the renewal of life!
Here is a homemade recipe for cleaning floors, woodwork.
When my children were little, I would wash the woodwork every spring,
now after all these years I am lucky if I get to dust or vacuum the woodwork.
I remember the house smelling so fresh and clean!
1/4 th cup of white vinegar
1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap
1/4 th cup of baking soda
2 gallons of warm to hot tap water,
You could also add about 4 drops of your favorite
essential oil for more aroma,
Tea Tree is a good one for its antimicrobial properties!
I did find this on Pinterest, here is the site if you would like to see more info
I will write more about Ostara later as we get closer to the date,
for now, I think I will go scrub my kitchen floor!
Thanks for visiting, have a great week!
