Celebrating Spring

March 22, 2015

Even though it snowed on the first day of Spring you can tell it’s here. The days are noticeably longer and the sap is running.  Yesterday we ventured to the tiny hilltown of Chester for the afternoon of the annual Maple Fest.  We took a tractor pulled hayride to Jameson’s sugar shack.

Today we cut a branch to decorate. Due to the snowy conditions we had limited choices and we have no idea whether or not it will produce any leaves or flowers. It is also smaller with weaker branches than usual, so it has less ornaments but I think we got a good selection of eggs, bugs, shamrocks, maple syrup related ornaments, etc.
