February is here! Where has January gone? On one hand, it has gone fast, on the other hand, it has dragged!
Imbolc is celebrated this month – signs of spring and new life are emerging; snowdrops, crocus’, daffodils and narcissus poking their young green shoots through the cold dark soil. Buds are appearing on some shrubs and trees. I have also seen some summer flowers blooming too – they are probably just as surprised by the sudden frost and snow as I am about their very early appearance!
It is time to cast off the cloak of winter – not literally your cloaks: it is still far too chilly for that! - but to give the cloak of winter a shake, have a peek at what's underneath, what needs doing at this time of year... A time of new beginnings, a time to plot and plan!
Spring cleaning comes to mind – physical spring cleaning of clutter no longer required and mentally and spiritually too – let go of what no longer serves.
