How Sweet It Is

Spring has sprung! And it has brought us into the thick of syrup season! I often feel soooo lucky to grow up in this area of the world where we have an abundance of this 'liquid gold'. Luckier still? To grow up on a farm whose first crop of the year is making that sweet nectar! Wanna see why I love it so much? Well, there are a million and a half reasons why..but here is a little glimpse into my world in the spring. Mud puddles, the sweet smell of sap boiling and walks through the woods. Love :)

Charlie and I going for a walk in the woods :)

A few snowshoe prints - before the snow melted!

Sticky, yicky, lovely mud!


We do it all by bucket! No pipeline for us..hello muscles!

Can you tell it was a beautiful day and I was having fun playing with the camera?!

The sugar shack!!

The sugar shack on a sunny afternoon :)

The steam from the evaporator :)

Putting some more wood on the fire!

Pouring off some of the first syrup!!

Oh Canada - I love you!

And THAT folks, is why I live in one of the most awesome places in the whoooole world.
