Lord Gilenir Veythorne formally invites all citizens and visitors of Ta’Illistim to celebrate the Dawn of the First Blossom with him and the newly replanted gardens of Veythorne Manor.

Dawn of the First Blossom:
Dawn of the First Blossom is a yearly celebration ushering in spring, and with it the anticipation of botanicals across both garden and greenhouse alike. From dawn’s first light, musicians begin to serenade the plant life, hoping to encourage seeds to take root or sprouts to thrive as the season continues. These instrumentalists range from a single violinist to a full, robust orchestra, the performers filling the air with music from dawn to dusk.

Fanciful packets of seeds and garden tools are given as gifts, a symbol of continuing creation and life anew after a season of frost. Children are often gifted small open-woven pouches filled with local, indigenous varieties of seeds, the hope that their rambunctiousness and joy will continue to spread these seeds into the meadows and forests throughout the year.
