Spring and Maple Syrup

Today we are going to a Cabane à Sucre. It's sugaring-off time again!!! Spring is definitely in the air... it's been raining a lot recently and most of the snow is now gone. The pond, which just last week was frozen, now has a lot of water on top of what is left of the ice.

We are going to the maple hut Au Pain de Sucre, here in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, with Les Relevailles, a breast-feeding support group for Saint-Jean, which I just recently joined.

Sugaring-off season is always a sure sign of spring. Especially in this part of the province. By April, the snow will be completely gone and the tulips will probably already be coming out.
