The trees and the spring flowers are a little confused as the weather this week was so much colder with a lot of strong winds. The birds do not seem to mind, and their morning songs are very cheerful. Warmer days are predicted for the arrival of the Easter Bunny, as my great-grand children always like to come to great-grandmother's house for the big Easter egg hunt.
Many of our human snowbirds are beginning to return. We welcome Ed & Laura Smith back this week, several others are expected back just before or after Easter. Hope many had the opportunity to celebrate the many Easter church services; there was quite a variety to pick from.
There are some joyful great-grandparents as they welcomed a new granddaughter, Emma Jacques into the world this past week. She is the child of Hannah Neilly and Kyle Jacques, grandmothers on both sides await her arrival home so they can spoil her. Glad to welcome Phyllis Martineau back home after a few days in the Hospital. Sad to learn of the death Amy (Oliver) Crouch this past week, she is the daughter of Bernie & Mary Oliver.
It is exciting to see new homes going up, and I did witness one over on Woodlawn drive area. I believe it is one of the Crowningshields'. It seems to be going up fast; a big difference in the appearance of the old Marshall house and the Crowningshield house. I hope they get finished soon.
It will soon be time to spruce up our lawns and flower beds. I really had a feeling of spring as I visited the Carriage House greenhouse this past week. They are ready for us to plant our gardens.
Happy Birthday: Ashley Whalen 4/1, Carson Sayward 4/2, Ella Mero 4/4, Brian Whalen 4/7, Bettie Lawrence 4/8, Mark Bonfey 4/9, Nina McNamara 4/9.
