IMBOLC ~ A CELTIC CELEBRATION OF THE COMING OF SPRING~ INSPIRATION ~ POETRY ~ AND WHATEVER PASSIONS ARE BREWING FROM WITHIN !
This is a day where the Celtic TRiple Goddess is tradtionally celebrated throughout Ireland. When the Christians, and old st Patrick chased the last of the Druids ( aka 'snakes') off the Island, Brighid was one of the few Goddesses that was kept alive (in belief) , and was celebrated by the church as a holy woman or saint. The Snow Drop Flower was one of her symbols. It is one of the first to pop up during this time of year!
juicy and delicious is the morning dew that slips down off this flower. It is a favorite essence of the little peoples and elementals!
i can imagine to them, that this is like a flowery milk shake that they sprite up quickly in the morning in anticipation for!
So just like a morning Sprite, i arose early to gathering the flowers , along with the mornings dew, to make up a delicious salt and mineral flower bath . The lakes are still a little cold this time of year for frolicking, so I must bring Nature into my house <3 !
