Spring Garden Spell

What you need:
1 quart of milk
garden seeds or plants
1/2 cup honey
2 stakes or sticks for each garden row
2 quart container
pastel ribbon or bow (one for each stake)
small bush branch with newly sprouted leaves or buds

Take all the materials outside to the garden. Mix the milk and honey and pour it into the container. Place the branch in the container and set aside. Poke a stake in the ground at the beginning and end of each row, then sow the seeds and/or plants. Tie a ribbon to each stake, saying to the seeds and plants in the row:

"Perfect love, I give to you.
Sprout and thrive with life anew."

Pick up the container and using the branch, add to the garden the with milk and honey. Consecrate it saying:

"Milk and honey, flow throughout,
Fertilize each seed and sprout.
Maiden, Green man, dance and play,
Twirl and laugh here everyday. Bring lush growth to this spot
Everywhere you skip and walk."

Water the garden thoroughly and be sure to tend to it's needs daily.
