Associated with Aphrodite, Thallo (Θαλλώ, literally “the one who brings blossoms”) or Thallatte was the goddess of spring, buds and blooms, a protector of youth. She is an horae.

In Greek mythology the Horae or Hours (Greek: Ὧραι, Hōrai, pronounced [hɔ̂ːraj], “seasons”) were the goddesses of the seasons and the natural portions of time. They were originally the personifications of nature in its different seasonal aspects, but in later times they were regarded as goddessess of order in general and natural justice.

The earliest written mention of horai is in the Iliad where they appear as keepers of Zeus’s cloud gates.

They were daughters of Zeus and Themis, half-sisters to the Moirae. Thallo (also known as Thallatte) along with her sisters, Auxo, and Carpo— were known as the goddesses of the three seasons the Greeks recognized: spring, summer and autumn— and they were worshipped primarily amongst rural farmers throughout ancient Greece.
