The flowering crab trees are finally blossoming and how beautiful they are!

The back yard

The back yard is so beautiful this time of year that one can’t help but want to sit outside and take in the sights and sounds that surround us here at North Fork B&B. The cestrels are nesting in the front trees and the wren is back in the lighthouse bird house. The blue birds are all over the place and the humming birds are plentiful. Sitting outside is a treat. A very relaxing getaway for sure!

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 flower

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.

Upcoming Craft Fair…

I’m hoping to be working on new products and making soap after work today. Yesterday I spent my time baking. I got another pretty large order for a coffee shop so my time was spent filling that. My plan for today is get cracking on getting ready for the St. Lawrence County Historical Associations Annual Craft Fair and Antique Show in Canton on April 24th. All week I’ve been designing this new soap in my mind and I can’t wait to put it together. Here’s hoping it’ll be today. I have some awesome new molds and fabulous colors. I’m also planning to put together some new spa bags too. As soon as I can manage to get these things going I’ll be taking photos to share. Check back and hopefully, I’ll have some brand new products for you to see. That’s the plan…
