We're that much closer to spring!
On my walk today I saw a pair of bluebirds. Is it just me, or did they return really early this year?! Maybe this couple is lazy, and they never left. Or I was hallucinating. After all, there's half a foot of snow on the ground.
But talk of maple sugaring is in the (ever slightly warmer) air. I contacted a local farm that is willing to share their stash of sap, so hopefully this weekend we can attempt to make syrup. Yes, I know we'll need 10 gallons for just one quart of syrup. But real maple syrup in any amount is a pretty special thing.
