Garden Spell

Soon it will be time to get your garden ready for spring.  This is a great spell to do now, while the garden is still asleep and waiting to grow.

Pick a sunny day and go outside and stand in the middle of your garden. Take a handful of dirt and say:
(now if the soil is still frozen you can use soil from a bag of potting soil, or from a house plant pot)

Hail and welcome!
Green life returns to the Earth.
Blooming and blossoming
Once more from the soil.
We welcome you Goddess of Spring,
Eostre, Persephone,
Flora and Cybele1
In the trees
In the soil
In the flowers
In the rains.
And we are grateful
for your presence!

And release the soil in your hand to fall on the garden... with a "Blessed Be!"
