Minneapolis May Day Celebration

May Day 2008Are you going to the May Day Festival? Maybe you’re new to the area, or maybe you’re not from around here. Well, if you haven’t heard about our May Day celebrations, now is your time to learn all about it.

Once a year, when the tulips start blooming, one diverse neighborhood in South Minneapolis puts on a little show. Not just any show, mind you, it’s a celebration of the coming of spring and the return of the season of warmth. It’s a little show that some 50,000 folks break out of hibernation for. It’s truly magical!

Now, we’re not telling you not to come to the store this Sunday, we’re just saying, that if you’re in town for the May Day parade, or the festival, or the ceremony out at powderhorn park, then we hope to see you here, as well, to walk the labyrinth and check out the tulips. Heck, we’re only 2 1/2 miles away. Mapquest says so.

See you Sunday!

Tulips Galore and More!

Wow, it’s getting tough to keep up with all the blooms bursting everywhere.  Here’s a new set of images of those tulips in full bloom, all along the edge of the labyrinth path.  Plus, we have a few crocus blooms in the shady part . . . and what are those funny maroon-tipped shoots coming up in their midst?  Bleeding hearts coming soon to a labyrinth near you.

Celebrate Earth Day Year-Round

Deep Within a Faerie ForestWhy wait until April to celebrate Earth Day? Earth is our mother year-round, as she tries to tell us with the cycles of growth, harvest, dormancy and then spring again. We invite you to bring that spirit into practice throughout your life.

Walk Deep Within a Faerie Forest with Wendy Rule in collaboration with Californian ambient artist Gary Stadler. This album is a sweet addition to Wendy’s solo work. Light and uplifting, Wendy’s vocals take on a Celtic lilt that combines beautifully with Gary’s piano. [Read more…]
