FFF Nature Friday - Dirty Spring

 Thanks to Aunty-Yam for hosting FFF and to Rosy for hosting nature Friday!

In the time of in-between,

spring has lost winters glean,

snow is black and paws are muddy

we all think it is very cruddy!

Now our adventure:

Last weekend we walked over to Callie's house

Hi Callie!

To check out their very fancy sugar shack!

It wasn't running yet, but should be starting this weekend so we will go over to see it. While we were there, they had put 180 taps into the trees behind our house. These taps, run down tubes to big barrels. The barrels will be brought to the shack where the magic will happen. We hope to be able to share more really soon1

  1. Like maple sugars? Mmm! (p.s., perhaps we were wrong about the snow lasting til the 4th of July, ya think?)

    oooooooohhhh Maple Syrup coming your way??? yummmmmmmmm.... Neat poem too! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. several mornings a week, i have Canadian Maple Syrup for breakfast, either with french toast or in a crepe. I can't eat honey or other syrups because of my IBS, Maple Syrup I can eat. YUM.. the snow does look cruddy and good job on the poem.. Poor Phod the Poop Eater...

  4. My Canadian family taps the trees on their property and sends us home-made maple syrup every year! Mighty fancy "vision"!

  5. we think that's bad for da carpets buddy ;O)))

  6. I love your poem...Well done and OMDs I have never ever seen anything like the sugar shack
    I look forward to more reports on the syrup
    Hugs Cecilia

  7. Muddy snow (and mud) is no fun. We can't wait to learn more about the maple sugar operation. Will you get some made from your own trees?

  8. We agree - mud is no fun! How fun to make your own maple syrup!

  9. Mmmmmmmm,maaapppllle syyyrrrruuuppp....Oh sorry, Mama was drooling a bit!

    We are lucky that our snow melts super quick, so we get Winter in the morning and Spring in the afternoon!

  11. Glad you saw your friend Callie.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  12. Yup, the season of mud is upon us which is simultaneously going on during spring. Sigh. Can't wait to hear more about 'the magic.'
