Some foods associated with this time is leafy green vegetables, dairy foods, seeds such as pumpkin, and sunflower, dishes containing flowers and sprouts and EGGS! The flowers and herbs are daffodils (a personal favourite, makes me very home sick), woodruff, olive, peony, iris and narcissus. The incense is all the floral types. Stones are agate, lapis lazuli and garnet. Some of the activities that can be done is planting a magical garden, performing seed blessings, wearing green, eat eggs that have been empowered with your desires, or have an egg hunt, or egg and spoon race! Visiting a pond as it is teeming with new life at this time. Leave sweet offering for the fairies. Love spells that can be cast at this time (but I always suggest approaching love spells with caution). It is a time of planting not only of seeds but of ideas.
