Sap’s runnin’

This is such a good sign of spring ariving. As a youngster I sugared with my brother in Vermont. The smell of boiling sap is indescribable. This ain’t your Log Cabin, this is the real deal and it comes from trees. Real trees tapped by real people.

Not too many places still use the old buckets! I love the second shot, with that single drop falling into the bucket!

That is SO cool! And I love that 2nd shot where you caught the drop and you can even see the shadow of the drop. Awesome!
