I posted this as part of my Post-It Note Tuesday post yesterday but the spell was too long for a post-it note... even the shortened version was cut off... so here is the full Garden Blessing Spell that I use each spring.
>> Bless a Spring Garden <<
- 1 qt of milk
- seeds or plants
- 1/2 cup of honey
- 2 stakes for each garden row
- 2 qt container
- pastel ribbon (one for each stake)
- Small branch with buds on it
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:
Pick up the container and using the branch, asperge the garden with milk and honey"Perfect love, I give to you.
Sprout and thrive with life anew."
Consecrate it saying:
Water the garden thoroughly and tend to its need each day."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."
