Maple Syrup Season

 A true harbinger of Spring. Our next door neighbor tapped the maple trees and the sap is already running into the buckets.



Another harbinger of change.......I used my camera for the first time today since November 2020 to take this shot. I stood on my covered deck out back to take it. 

I'm healing and am out of the boot and able to walk wearing a sneaker. Yay! I still have a significant limp and still don't have full range of motion and am walking with the assistance of a walker, but the progress I am making is significant. 

I hope all is well in your world!

  2. Great to hear that you're starting to get around, Carol. Here's hoping that the recovery is steady and, in time (sooner than later), complete.

  3. Dear Carol, ~ Thanks for your much anticipated good progress report! What a great backyard! Your neighbor will be busy with that stack of firewood. I'm thinking the buckets are placed facing south by the way the snow has fallen under the tree.

    1. You are correct with the facing South! Probably South/Southwest. With the warms temps this week the sap is flowing like crazy!

  4. Glad you're recovering with camera in hand. I like your pic with the blue buckets. I bet your cupboard has plenty of "Vermont" maple syrup.

    1. My stash of syrup is dwindling Ed. I typically go up every March for the sugar season but didn't go last year due to covid and won't be able to make it this year as well.

  5. Hi Carol,
    I am sorry to hear you have been hurt. I am glad that your are starting to feel better!
    I was just reading through some of my old blog posts and came across this gem. http://blog.greglessardphotography.com/2013/02/gotta-laugh-at-yourself-aka-swamp.html I hope it brings a laugh to your day, like it did for me.
    Get well soon!

  6. Hi Greg,
    Thanks for sharing that memory. That was such an awesome trip and your "mishap" is quite the story to tell. I still laugh out loud about that!!!
