  1. Lovely photo–“sweet” (as the younger generation say)!! And with the sap welling up from the roots, “give rise? is perfect! You were kind enough to let your earlier photo grace my Sugar Snow story, and now this one is the perfect follow-up! Here’s to Spring, and pancakes!

    1. I thought of you and your wonderful story when I posted this this morning. – Thanks for catching ‘give rise’ a suger-er like you would!

  2. Great photo/word combination! My father has friends who are maple sugar-ers and I’ve visited their place….I don’t think I’ve ever smelt anything as good as maple syrup being made…especially on a cold day!

  3. When I was a little girl a story in my reader about this process captured my imagination and fascinates me to this day. Big smile when I saw this picture.

  4. I really like this one, but I shouted inside OMG that’s too many taps on each tree, will kill the tree! I love maple sugaring time!

  5. Again, you’ve made me homesick for New England. Years ago, my best friend, his wife, and I sugared a small stand. Lots of beer, lots of patience, and the sweetest of tastes …

  6. LOVE this photo! I did a water color of it. Thank you for the inspiration! I directed people to your site so they can see your other wonderful photographs!

  7. I love that they are doing it the old fashioned way in your photo!!!
    Around here its long plastic tubes laced like spider web through the trees to a big tank somewhere at the bottom of a hill. What a charming picture
