Hello Again All :-)
It is pouring rain here today. But with rain comes mud and with softer ground comes life from deep below. I look so forward to the first signs of daffodil and tulip tips poking thier little noeses through the ground.
The Canadian Geese are starting to fly in, showing us those 'v's we've all come to expect and look forward to. Yes and then come all the little birds that say, "spring is coming". Ahhhhhh, spring. My favorite time of year.
We've secured the dates, locations and chefs for our Farm To Table Dinner Event's. We are very happy to working with The Thumb Area Tourism Council on these events. Here's the scoop;
