Here in Minnesota, as things start to melt, everything gets squishy and brown and we can't wait for the lilacs and all the pretty spring ephemeral flowers. But I like to look under the rocks and think about the little tiny bugs and frogs beginning to thaw out from their underground earthy hibernation. Fresh compost in the back of the yard is ready for seeds and our hands will get dirty as we dig in.
Think of the beginning of The Wasteland from T.S. Eliot (1922)

|Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing|
|Memory and desire, stirring|
|Dull roots with spring rain...|
Bugs, spring rains, growth and the earth have inspired these artists. How are you inspired by this season?

Dragonfly. Symbol of change and self realization. These little bugs spend seven years underwater in nymph form just eating pond invertebrates and getting bigger until they reach this stage, the four-winged iridescent beauty. #dragonfly

Mother Earth is basically what everything is all about. Who doesn't like digging in the dirt and planting pea and radish seeds as soon as the soil is workable?
MinneBites seems to be infatuated with the cute creepy crawlies. I can relate. This purse would look great when attending High Tea at the MN Landscape Arboretum @mnarboretum
Wouldn't this beeswax fern pillar candle be perfect to gift at a Spring-themed get together?
