Spring Folklore and Verse One swallow does not make a spring. Bluebirds are a sign of spring; warm weather and gentle south breezes they bring. In spring, no one thinks of the snow that fell last year. Don’t say that spring has come until you can put your foot on nine daisies. Spring-time sweet! The whole Earth smiles, thy coming to greet.
Vernal Heart - [Spring is here! Every year I shoot a self-portrait in the branches of this very tree for the vernal equinox. There's something so invigorating about ushering in the fresh growth and warmer, longer days with this self-made tradition.]
Lada, Slavic Goddess of the Spring, is associated with love and fertility in both humans and animals. She is said to return from the underworld every year at the Vernal Equinox, bringing the spring with her.
