In an effort to notice more of the ordinary in my life, I have decided to share what I have noticed this week in Take Three Thursday. The idea is to take photos that are linked some how; by theme, by colour, by date, by moment, by points of view. There is no formal link in but please feel free to join in. What have you noticed this week?
Have a look at what others have noticed this week:
Maggie at Farmers Wife Day by Day
Ruth At This West London Life
Karen at Random Reflections
Melissa at Daily Life-Bits & Pieces
This week what I have noticed is the tapping of the sugar maples for sap to make into syrup. It seems that not only the syrup farmers but anyone with sugar maples on their property are tapping. So many new products on the market make it easier for everyone to do. Yeah for technology.
I also noticed that there are quite a variety of pails & buckets being used. All have lids with locking mechanism which is to keep the pesky raccoons out (I think) or from debris falling into the liquid gold.
It's a sign of spring, it is also the surest sign that it's only a few weeks away until The Elmira Maple Syrup Festival - a one day event that draws in crowds from all over southern Ontario. Elmira Maple Syrup Festival, it's worth the drive. Check out the official site for all the activities Elmira Maple Syrup Festival
