Here is the second piece of my "women in mythology" series.

In Welsh mythology, Blodeuwedd is the spring and owl goddess, who represents life and death. Her name means "born of flowers" or "flower face." She was created from nine different floral blooms, but then transformed into an owl as punishment for betrayal.
She is part of a triad associated with the changing phases of the moon. She symbolizes fleeting beauty and the blooming of life that must come full circle through darkness and death. She is night and day, and the passing of seasons from spring to winter.
