Celebrating Spring - New Give-A-Way.!

Though it is still a bit brisk out, I can just feel Spring in the air. My garden is calling to me and I am excited about planning what herbs, veggies and flowers will be planted this year.!

Let's Celebrate Spring ... time for rebirth. The length of daylight rapidly increases, and the hemisphere begins to warm significantly causing new plant growth to 'spring forth' giving the season its name. According to the astronomical definition, Spring begins on the Vernal Equinox (Usually March 20th in the North Hemisphere).

This is such a beautiful season .. the 'new green' on the trees, all the flowers peaking thru the ground .. Mother Nature birthing forth.!

Our Spring Give-A-Way this month::
Post and leave a comment on this before March 15th,2009 for your chance to win.

Our drawing this month will award 2 lucky winners.

Please be sure to include the following:
- your email address
- your name

The winners will receive:

The 1st winner will receive:
- Moon & Stars Pewter Pendant w/ Amethst

The 2nd winner will receive:
- Ageless Elixir Facial Formula

The drawing will be held on March 16th, 2009 and the winners will be announced on March 16th, 2009.

Be sure to share this drawing with your friends & family.
You have to be in it to win it.!!

May the 'luck of the Irish' be with you.!

Quotes for Spring ::
'In the spring, at the end of the day,
you should smell like dirt.'
- - Margaret Atwood

'Indoors or out, no one relaxes in March,
that month of wind and taxes,
the wind will presently disappear,
the taxes last us all the year.'
- - Ogden Nash

'And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love .. felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.'
- - Percy Bysshe Shelley, 'The Sensitive Plant'

Some Winter Quotes ::
“Sometimes our fate resembles
.... a fruit tree in winter.
Who would think that those branches
would turn green again and blossom,
but we hope it, we know it.”
- - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe quotes (German Playwright, Poet, Novelist and Dramatist. 1749-1832)

“There is no art in turning a goddess into a witch,
a virgin into a whore, but the opposite operation,
to give dignity to what has been scorned,
to make the degraded disireable,
that calls for art or for character.”
- - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"Winter is the time for comfort,
for good food and warmth,
for the touch of a friendly hand and
for a talk beside the fire:
it is the time for home."
- - Edith Sitwell

'Surely as cometh the Winter, I know
There are Spring violets under the snow.'
- - R.H. Newell
