Brigid is dear to my heart and with Imbolg, I always try to do some sort of planting or growing. For this challenge, I wanted to include my Imbolg celebrations and my plant babies.
Imbolg heralds the beginning of Spring, regardless of where you live. Though the crocuses may not have poked through the frozen ground in your area, we know that after Imbolg passes and Brigid walks the earth, our climates will begin to shift into the seasonal transition. The days will get progressively longer, the weather progressively warmer (although this is subjective), and the quickening of the fertile land will become more apparent.
I bought these plants a few weeks ago when I went to a local farmer’s market. They survived well enough in their plastic containers, but it was time to give them new home so they can flourish fully.
Pictured is garden sage, rosemary, and a hopefully-still-alive peppermint plant.
I played some Irish music while I repotted these and just let my mind flow wherever it wanted to. The peppermint didn’t do so well in its original container, so hopefully moving it into a larger container will help give it some more pep. My garden sage just took off which really shocked me, honestly.
I also found this Daisy grow kits at Goodwill, so I bought two and my daughter and I created a wish flower. With the cultivation and growth of our daisies, so too will our wishes blossom.
Besides taking care of my plant babies, I made pancakes this morning, gave my offering to Brigid, brought in my Brat Bride from outside, and have plans for a cleansing shower in a bit before I continue my work. I hope you all have a wonderful Imbolg or Lughnasadh wherever you are!
