Our raku pottery vase this week
Flora’s Hope, celebrates a very special Roman goddess. Flora was not only the goddess of flowers and spring, but she was also the goddess of youth and her initiates really knew how to throw a great party.
Speaking of great parties . . .
Mark your calendars because Floralia is fast approaching. Flora’s festival was traditionally held between April 28th and May 3rd and typically included drinking, flower costumes, plays, mimes, and ended in a hunt and feast!
This festival celebrated the renewal of life, which is something I hope we will all be celebrating soon!
With this third wave of the pandemic, which has finally reached the shores of Atlantic Canada, we all need something to celebrate, and what better than this season of Spring and new life. I would also like to dedicate this vase to all of our youth, who are facing a tough burden with this pandemic putting parts of their life and milestones on hold.
What is something you are looking forward to celebrating when we can do so safely?
