Spring Equinox 2018

From the Regional Druid Happy Spring!

From the Regional Druid Blessed Beltane to you all, Here in California, we’re having a wet spring. While it’s lovely that we’re getting the water, it does put a bit of a damper on outdoor activities.  I’m looking forward to a somewhat dryer summer so I can get outside to walk more often.
