Today we have 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night. The perfect balance between light and dark is waking up nature and we can see and smell the evidence of her renewed energy everywhere. It also rains as much as the sun shines this time of year, a time to celebrate!
We have worked in the garden and planted new fruit bushes and sowed vegetable and herb seeds and added compost to the fruit and nut trees. We have only 50m2 of garden here in the city, and so many snails, but over the years I found out what to grow and how to grow it, inspired by one acre farm sites and tips. So on our mini farm we have 4 chickens, 2 rabbits, a compost pile, and grow lots of different herbs, apples, pears, hazelnuts, blackberries, elderberries, strawberries, raspberries, roses, lavender and some vegetables on the roof of the rabbits house. Sometimes I can forget we are in the city.
It’s the time for the new to come out, not only in nature, but also in our lives. After the long, still, dark winter I feel so much change coming upon us. In our personal lives, but on a global scale as well. This can bring out insecurity, but I tell myself (and others) again and again to be curious. Focus on what you want, what you aim at, what looks promising. It’s tempting to raid about what is wrong or not working, but bring your energy to what could work, what feels right, to all the new and bright and the ‘just beginning’ you cannot really trust yet but is worth to explore. Happy Spring Equinox!
