Events and Happenings Around Spring

I bought a wonderful wall calendar this year created by Chris Hardman, you can see all about it here: Ecological Calendar .

The name it gives to this part of this season is Trill, every single day has a name. Today is SilkTree and tomorrow is OrchardMasonBee. I was particularly thrilled when it was MajesticLoon on the 11th. It has a star chart; a seasonal guide to planets, stars, and constellations; proportions of daylight and darkness; moon phases; meteorological and terrestrial phenomena; a tide chart; ECOlogical day names and season names; and Gregorian days, dates and months. Because I am an earth girl and a wordsmith, passionate about both, it has thrilled me so much already this year.

Last weekend finally saw a venturing into the garden to tidy up and start planting. This year the slugs and snails will not eat the pumpkins, grapes or courgettes as in the next few days I will be investing in some Nemaslug from the lovely Green Gardener . The excitement of planting and watching things grow is building within me.

Below the beautiful purple blingy heart is a list of varied events and happenings around spring. I hope you find something to interest you, inspire you, and help you grow !
