Spring has sprung!

Spring is here for sure! It always amazes me how flowers and green grass can just suddenly appear and appear they did! Usually I'm checking daily for bulbs to be popping out of the ground. This year spring surprised me. Before I knew it, crocus were blooming and the daffodils were out. My flowering crab trees are in full bud and ready to burst forth with flowers.

You can see that these first flowers have come up through all the dead leaves left over the winter to blossom. It always takes my breath away to see the first new spring blossoms. Amazing!

These daffodils are on the south side of the house so they open early.

These are on the east side of the house and are out in the open along a fence. They usually open a few days to a week later but last for a couple of weeks and are quite spectacular. We have many photos of  this spring display which grows each year as the bulbs multiply. My plan is to get a few photos of this to share so check back and see these fabulous flowers!

It's Been Way Too Long...

I can't believe that it's been almost 2 weeks since I've written. I have to say, though, that it's been due to being incredibly busy. I took my chorus students to River Dance. Planning and executing the trip took a lot of time and energy but it was all very well worth the effort. My students had the experience of a life time. I would do it all again in a heart beat! The show was more than amazing. Every student said thank you to me and the other adults that went on the trip. We had dinner and then went to the show. The bus trip down was great! We had a brand new bus and the kids were as wonderful as always. Everyone enjoyed dinner at Babe's and then we walked to Friendly's for dessert. Everyone was amazed with the Stanley Theater and it's beauty. It was completely renovated a few years ago and it is not only beautiful but charming too.

Today, I'm baking. I have a couple of large orders I need to fill and I'm getting ready for the craft fair April 24th. I think it will be fun! I'm especially excited because my cousin may be coming up to go with me. As long as things go along as usual, we're hoping she can come up a couple of days before the craft fair and go along. We did craft fairs together years ago but since I moved to New York we haven't had the opportunity. I'm looking forward to it. Well that's all for now. I'm getting back to the baking but I still have a lot to share so I'll get back to it in a bit.
