Wheel of the year~ Imbolc

Imbolc is a Celtic feast that is the midway point between the winter solstice and spring equinox. The sun marks the Solstices and Equinoxes and the midpoints are called the cross-quarter days. In some cultures February 2nds the official beginning of spring.

First I cut fronds into similar width and length

then folded and glued according to instructions

...listening for Spring
