In celebration of spring, here is a tiny garden constructed as a gift for a much loved friend.
Our friends celebrate the ancient festival of Nowruz, which is the first day of spring. This special festival, in celebration of the new year, which begins at the spring equinox; traces its history to ancient times and the Zoroastrian faith of the ancient Persians.
This special festival brings friends and family together to share wishes for health, wealth, and the fulfillment of wishes in the new year. There is wonderful food, music, flowers, and abundant laughter. We were so honored to be invited to join their celebrations this evening!
This little gift of green life and abundance carries our good wishes for the new year to our friends and their family. There are ferns just poking up through the soil, a sprouting vine of Creeping Jenny, many different mosses, and lichens.
I hope you have celebrated this first day of spring, and that you have found joy in it.
What a perfect day to count as the beginning of a new year of growth and abundance!
