Welcome to our farmhouse…life is good!

Thursday, March 17

happy Saint Patrick's Day!

The madcap month of March...today the sun is brightly shining, warming & waking up the farmland around us. Who would have thought we only recently had a snowfall? It seems as if March just can't make up her mind...what shall it be, the last days of winter and the first days of spring?

But never mind the weather, today is a day for fun...there's a pot of Irish Stew simmering on the stove, potatoes boiling for Colcannon (yum, how can anyone not like potatoes whipped with heavy cream and real butter!),  dough rising for homemade rolls, and well, with a nod to modern times, plans for Shamrock Shakes as dessert!

Today, we all claim to be Irish...but for a real peek at what those of us in the Midwest are missing, click here - ahhh, if I went, I'd never come home!


  1. Ohh how sweet of you to include a link back to my wee post for St Paddy's day! So glad you enjoyed the views!
    Enjoy your Irish feast! Colcannon is my hubby's favourite!
    Happy St Patrick's day!

    1. You're welcome! It's the BEST way to see what we're celebrating, and ooooh, that beautiful scenery!


Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!
