When we first moved to the farm, a row of forsythia bushes beside the driveshed were covered in blooms at the beginning of April. Since then, I’ve measured the progress of spring by the forsythia.
The forsythia flowers arrived last week–the most flowers we’ve had in years. Unfortunately, right after they arrived, snow returned. So I’m not sure that forsythia is my best measure of spring this year.
Here are some other things that caught my attention this month.
Have house prices gone crazy where you are too? Farmhouse sells for $1,115,000 over asking
I haven’t been able to listen to music since before Matt died. The other week I found this song. I still cry, but I love it.
I went waaaay back in my recipe archives to make this pasta last week, and it was so good. (I omitted the pepper and added tomatoes, artichokes and spinach to up the veggie quotient).
Mudroom inspiration for coloured cabinets and large-scale rough stone tiles.
We’re finishing off April by picking the mudroom tile and paying taxes (worse than snow in the spring). We have a bunch of outdoor projects underway here, so I’m hoping that warm, sunny days return soon.
