Signs of Spring

in Island Life, Spring

DaffsDaffs coming up in my garden, under the magickal hawthorn tree.


Friend Robin singing merrily at the top of a red alder, catkins swaying in the breeze


The first native shrub to bloom in spring, Friend Osoberry, whose bright chartreuse leaves stand up like little green flames.  Impossible to miss in the woods right now.  Unfortunately the white blossoms have a scent not unlike the catbox.



Cloud and shadow, sun and showers, all on the same day.

Persephone is stirring.  Blessed be.

Thoughtful, sparkling comments. . .

    Oh! Everything about those pictures is so familiar… I love the last one especially. It reminds me of every beautiful, wet road I’ve ever wandered in Western Washington.

    I was out in the woods this weekend. The osoberry seemed to be dragonflies or fairies, with their bright green wings floating in the air in swarms.
    I planted an osoberry in my yard last summer, but probably didn’t water enough. I’m happy to report I’ve got my own little swarm of green and white right now.
    And the red-flowering currant are budding…

    Jade, I’m really enjoying the photos of your new home in Arboreality. And Laura, I love your description of the osoberry leaves as faery wings! And the red-flowering currant just started blooming here too!
