This book was donated to the charity shop this week and I snapped it up because of the illustrations.
This is the page for the Spring Equinox, showing the wheel of the year
Ostara was the pagan festival celebrating Eostre, a Saxon goddess and gives us the words East and Easter. She is often depicted as having a hare's head on a human body.
The Year's at the spring,
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hill-side's dew-pearl'd;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in His heaven.......
All's right with the world!
To welcome spring I have these lovely tulips....................... a draw prize win at small WI.
If you choose the flowers and vase (a horrible metal thing.....ooops controversial! - prefer my jug!) for your draw prize there is a catch, as I now have to take the vase back with flowers for a draw prize at next months meeting!
