Bless a Spring Garden...

Bless a Spring Garden
-- 1 qt. milk
-- garden seeds or plants
-- 1/2 cup honey
-- 2 stakes or sticks for each garden row
-- 2 qt. container
-- pastel ribbon (1 for each stake)

-- small tree or bush branch with newly sprouted leaves & buds

Take all the materials outside to the garden. Mix the milk and honey together and pour it into a container. Place the branch in the container and set it aside.

Poke a stake in the ground at the beginning and end of each row, then sow the seeds and/or set the plants. Tie a ribbon bow around each stake, saying to the seeds & the plants in that row:

"Perfect love, I give to you. Sprout and thrive with life anew."

Pick up the container and using the branch, asperge the garden with milk and honey.
Consecrate it saying:

"Milk and honey flow through out,
Fertilize each seed and sprout.
Maiden, Green Man, dance & play,
Twirl and laugh here everyday.
Bring lush growth and green this spot
Every where you skip and walk."

Water the garden thoroughly and tend to its need each day.
