|Canola Fields in Alberta. Forgive the shadow of my car!|
This year, we will be celebrating Beltane by starting our first herb garden! I have an inexplicably purple thumb. I'm a kitchen witch and a hearth witch, not a green witch! We are going to be buying these little bundles at our local hardware store that you let grow almost hydroponically for the first couple weeks, then you transplant into the ground or pots. Perfect for someone like me, and perfect for Beltane.
Fertility of the crops was of utmost importance in times past, and while most of us don't grow our own crops any longer fertility is still important to us. We can still celebrate fertility at Beltane, just a different kind. We need fertility in our lives to nurture our dreams, and without finding that fertile ground within ourselves we can never make our goals come to fruition. We need that fertile ground in our lives to raise our children in, and to nurture our relationships with spouse, friend and family.
How will you be celebrating Beltane? How do you include Beltane's fertility in your life?
