Maple Syrup Festival


Several members of the Maryland Chapter of the Tasha Tudor Museum Society gathered at Cunningham Falls State Park in Thurmont, Maryland last Saturday for the Park's annual Maple Syrup demonstration.   Maple sugaring was one of the things Tasha Tudor featured in several of her books:  A Time to Keep, Around the Year, Seasons of Delight.  This drawing of hers is in Mary Mason Campbell's book, The New England Butt'ry Shelf Almanac. . . .

Country Diary of An Edwardian Lady - March



"March has come in like a lamb with a warm wind and rain from the South-west," Edith Holden wrote in her 1906 diary.  On the 12th she wrote, "After a wet windy day, we woke this morning to a regular snow storm, the air was full of whirling flakes, but in the midst of it all I heard a Sky-lark singing."

View Outside My Window - March


I've come back to my kitchen window this month to show you the view.   You may notice I've rearranged the window sill knickknacks. The 10 inches of snow we had last Thursday has started to melt. . . .

Waiting for Spring

I'm sitting here at my desk watching the snow falling outside my window. . . .

And I was thinking about Spring.  I know much of the country has had more than its fair share of winter this year and many of you are also eager for greenery and flowers!  So I wanted to send you to my very first Morning Musing's post--one of my favorites--and hope it helps tide you over until Spring does finally arrive.  Be sure to click on the link to the accompanying music. . . .
