Greetings to all folks near and far. I hope spring has brought you an abundance of joy and beautiful gardens.
Did you plant a vegetable garden this year, or pot up some herbs? Some of my favorite herbs to grow are lavender, rosemary, chamomile, basil, and oregano. I keep these potted plants on my patio where they get lots of sun and provide me with wonderful fragrances as I sip my morning coffee. I also like to plant flowers that will entice hummingbirds to come join me on the patio.
Did you know that the smallest living bird is the Bee Hummingbird? The Bee Hummingbird is a species of hummingbird that is endemic to Cuba and Isla de la Juventud. It weighs just 0.063 oz and is only 1 1/2in long.
Was there a goddess in ancient times that was celebrated as the Goddess of Spring, who gave her name to the Christian holiday of Easter? Come read my latest article and take a look back in time.
Here is my latest article from the Folklore and Mythology site at BellaOnline.com.
Eostre - Germanic Goddess Of Spring
The German goddess of spring, fertility, and rebirth is considered by many to be Eostre, sometimes referred to as Ostara. Some say Eostre is the ancient Norse goddess of spring. Both the name Eostre and Ostara are often used in Germanic Neopaganism.
