For the last couple of years, I’ve been leaving my libations and offerings in the back corner of our yard – particularly full moon and dark moon offerings, but others as the mood strikes me. It’s piled with large landscaping rocks, and we’ve always left it to grow somewhat wild – though the fire pit is only there because the lawn care crew moved it out of their way:
When we first moved here, the yard was mostly just dirt and rock. Up near the fence line at the front of the house, there are violets – and they’ve stayed there, until this year, when suddenly we had a whole bunch of them here in my offering corner – and while it’s possible they’ve spread the last few years all the way along the side fence, there were virtually no blooms along there this past month – just the cluster at the front of the house, and the cluster back here.
I’m taking this as a good sign, among several others, that the offerings have been accepted and are much appreciated. This is one of two spots in the yard that I think really need some sort of statue or other symbol of the gods, I just haven’t quite figured out what yet.
