At the beginning of February is the Celtic celebration of Imbolc – no not the start of the six nations, or the fact our local pop up cake shop has reopened for the Spring – although these are also good reasons to celebrate!
Imbolc falls between the winter and spring solstice, this year its 1st February.
It is linked to the Goddess Brigid, with straw dolls made for her as part of the blessings ceremony.
Its key significance is the beginning of spring. So even though we might have snow and it is zero degrees outside, we welcome in the spring like energy of the new season.
I love to have daffodils in the house at this time of year – either in bulbs or a little vase. Their yellow heads bring happiness and always make me smile.
I am excited by the approach of spring as to me it represents the expansion of my business and my coming out of my bulb and into the world- sharing joy and tools – and being that yellow bud that brings joy to others!
Wishing you a blessed Imbolc x
