After the long and cold winter we had this winter, it is a relief that spring has come. Those of us who live in the Niagara Peninsula are lucky to have all the wonderful orchards that flower in white and pink at this time of year. The blossoms bring the promise of wonderful peaches and cherries for the summer.
It is also a great sight to see the vineyards starting to green up. Unfortunately, some of the grape varieties were hit hard this summer, but there will still be some great Niagara wines made this year.
The summer festivals are always fund to attend. There will be a new Food and Wine event at our new Beamsville home, the Fleming Centre, in June. It has just been announced that the Beamsville Farmers Market will also be held at our new building.
This is why I love living in Niagara!
