Each Easter Tasha made hot cross buns. She baked them in the large cast iron cook stove, frosted the cross on them, and visitors ate them hot for tea.

It is such an exciting day when the mail holds Sparrow Post valentines! Opening the mail requires a special cup of Tasha's Hot Chocolate.

Snow horses are a mainstay of winter, but only visit when the snow sticks properly. Tasha called it sugar snow, as it often falls around the time sap runs in the sugar maples. It sticks to all the branches of the trees and collects in great heights upon tops of fence posts and birdfeeders.

I took some liberties and changed a few thing when I made these last. I cut the crusts off and cut the square into triangles. Not having chickens myself, I wasn't wild about all the scraps the rounds left, although they make delightful croutons.

By this time of year the garden has been weeded for the last time, cleared of dried stems and brown leaves, and compost spread upon the beds. The ground will soon be frozen, and the long shadows that shield the frost on the grass for much of the day, arrive late and depart early. In between it is dark, for winter is here.
