Good morning! It's been a horribly long time since I have posted, and I have missed you all. I do hope all of you are well and are enjoying the wonderful change from winter to spring. It is so nice to see the ground again and smell the thawing earth, to hear the rushing waters of the nearby river and the early morning songs of the birds. It is still a bit chilly here in our corner, but that is okay. The season has changed and spring has sprung!
When I sat down to write, I wasn't sure where to begin...so much has happened over the past month... so I decided to share a short overview of the highlights for the month of April.
Trees were tapped; sap boiled; maple syrup enjoyed (sometimes by the tablespoon full).
Puppies were born.
Birthdays were celebrated (two for us in the month of April).
Surgery was undergone and recuperating took place.
Our first red cardinal was joyfully spotted on the farm (I have been trying to attract this beautiful bird to our property for many years...hoping he will return).
Snow melted; buds swelled; eggs were laid; spring arrived.
Looking forward to the month of May!
