Spring is a time to think of renewal and rebirth. The earth shows us signs of rebirth, when the snow claws back and the muddy fresh earth emerges. Buds grow on the trees and baby animals spring up everywhere. Yup spring is in the air.
Here is a Ostara craft that you can try. You will need the following:
Card-stock, or bristleboard Envelopes Seed packets Glue, Pens, markers and other craft supplies
Select a packet of seeds for each greeting card. Use the glue to attach the card to the front of the card. A hot glue gun can damage the seeds inside. It is best to use regular craft glue.
Use your pens or markers or glitter pens to write an inspiring message inside. Try:
Wishing you a blooms and abundance at Ostara!
Give the cards to friends during the Ostara season.
I peek anxiously at my garden every chance I get, searching for a sign of new growth. I noticed that a new leaf has come up in my indoor orchid plant. The flowers are so beautiful. Soon, I plan to rake the leaves back and add fresh soil to my garden. The sight of fresh buds and unfurling leaves lightens my heart.
The flowers that come up in my garden first are usually lady’s mantle and canterbury bells. But a few other plants show their floral faces in early spring.
Hyacinth Tulips Daffodils Crocuses Snowdrops Anemone Apple blossoms and cherry blossoms
All of these flowers are of course, have breathtaking beauty. I am getting excited just writing all of this. I will probably lose my cool at the sight of the crocuses in my garden. If you planted the bulbs in the fall, then you can count on them blooming this spring. Mulch around the roots and water them regularly. Remember to fertilize the plants too after their long winter sleep. Embrace the beauty and power of spring.
