I LOVE fresh maple syrup like this. I've only seen this done once, but was fascinated by the process!

I love syrup season. There is nothing as good as real maple syrup. Do you do Taffy on the Snow?

What great shots! I showed my son and I'm not sure he believed me about what the buckets were for!

Wow, that is so cool! I do have to say however, I am NOT jealous of all that snow you still have! Thankfully all the snow is gone here!
