Yesterday morning, much to our surprise, we woke up to a Spring Equinox snow. The ground was covered in a good four inches, and it just kept coming down. School was cancelled, so I decided it was a good morning to hunker down and make a waffle breakfast.
Upon looking out the front door, the kids discovered gifts from the Spring faeries in a basket, including lettuce seeds, hardboiled quail eggs and homemade chocolate bunnies.
I checked on the garden, and found it all tucked in under a thick white blanket.
I couldn't help but venture out barefoot on the balcony, and run back in to stick my feet in front of the woodstove.
Snowmen were built and much fun was had crunching through the snowy morning.
I got busy at my work table and finished these handmade birds nests for my Etsy shop: http://www.mountainhearth.etsy.com/
And, speaking of nests and eggs, here's another Spring project I've been working on. I made these chocolate eggs from scratch with wildcrafted Bolivian cocoa beans and sprinkled them with lavender and alder smoked sea salt. Pure deliciousness.
Happy Spring to All!
