Spring baby shower
What a time-honoured tradition, the sharing of women's knowledge around birth and child-raising! The table was laid with a pink cloth and colourful food, in honour of this baby girl who will soon be amongst us. I passed around little 'chickens' from the hen and chickens ferns, so everyone could take home some tender new life to nurture. As spring declares itself more definitely, and the days are suddenly warmer, I feel tender, protective and filled with wonder at the miracle of birth.
