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.

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'

~ until next time,

I'm antsy for spring too! Can hardly wait, have pushed a little snow and mulch aside to take a peek to see if anything is awakening.

UPS just brought me your beautiful OWOH gift! Thank you so much ~ The Dydrosol of White Rose is delicious beyond belief, no exaggeration here! Plus a sample of your Aloe/seaweed I look forward to trying when I wash my face tonight. I can not help but think the magic of mother nature had her hand in this gifting to me. I am nearing the end of a month long skin cancer treatment. I have been craving rose something for my skin, then I got your email. Thank you so much! Magic! I am so glad I found you and your products.

This is a really neat site, glad I found out about it from Prarieland Herbs newsletter. The pendant is awesome and what a wonderful way to wear your favorite essential oil scent.

In Florida we do not get spring just summer and winter. I miss the lilacs, hyacinth, and irises blooming. They are a childhood memory.

"Sleeping with a sunflower under your pillow will permit you to know the truth of any matter." - Traditional Folk Wisdom - "New seed is faithful. It's roots deepest in the places that are most empty." C.P. Estes Hi Maggie and Happy Birthday to you! I love your company and your newsletters also! I tried your spray hydrosol mists last summer and they were so refreshing in the heat of the day. I especially loved the Chocolate Mint flavor! Patricia in Manitou Springs, Colorado

Carol said...

It's hard to think spring when the weather forecast for central MN calls for 4-8 inches of snow tomorrow! Maybe if we turn a calendar page we can turn the weather towards spring. Carol

Thank you.

Hi Roseanne, Tonight I enjoyed your blog as well as your company website.
Your giveaway necklace of Moon & Stars is beautiful and so appropriate for aromatherapy use. As a lover of scents, I'm always
looking for new ways to use my oils.
If I'm lucky enough to win the necklace, I'll wear it for my
"Committment Ceremony" in April
on the beach in Naples, Florida.
Thanks for the nice site,
Linda Bickford

I really like what you have done. Keep up the good work.


Deb said...

It's been such a long winter. We've had more snow than any winter I can remember in the 46 years I've lived here in the great Oregon northwet. And more is predicted for this weekend. We haven't had snow in March since 1951!

I'm ready for spring and I'm always ready to win. Thanks for the chance!


dlans said...

Wow after the 3-6 inches of Snow that fell in south Carolina March 2-3rd we are really ready for spring to get here. I love the pendant and I hope I win.
