Well, it is April 17th. Several months have passed since the most interesting parts of winter, notably Christmas. It has been a long winter here as in most places in the country. Spring appears to have arrived, though we will see a sneak down in temps this weekend. The trees are blooming and the sweet green of the young leaves are appearing on the leaves. This really is a beautiful time of year. I see all my friends excited about the weather change and posting wonderful spring photos on Facebook. The real estate market has been busy through the winter though. We have lots of new neighbors in the area and not enough inventory. As a result of this, the new construction has been booming! I just helped a client close a fabulous new construction home yesterday.
I wanted to say a few things about the Main Street Festival that is coming up in 10 days. I may have even written about it before. It is a wonderful event in Spring when most of the town comes out to stroll around downtown, eat kettle corn, listen to some great live music and buy wonderful crafts from area artisans. I always see friends in town when I go. It reminds me that Franklin is still a small town. The dates this year are April 27 and 28, 2013. Please go to the Heritage Foundation site for more info about it. I expect they will post a schedule for the music shortly.
