maple taffy on the snow
Since the weather wasn't the greatest and I wasn't feeling that great either, I never got to the Sugar Bush weekend at Kings Landing Historical Settlement this year so I thought I'd post a few pictures from last year for Sunlit Sunday.
A year ago we had had beautiful hot temperatures for several days and the snow melted away so fast that it caused major flooding in some areas along the rivers.
It was a perfect weekend for a visit to Kings Landing and to walk around in the gorgeous sunshine and enjoy the beautiful scenery of this historic site.
These are various types of spigots used to tap into the tree so the sap can flow into the buckets as in the 1800's.
Here is a spigot in a tree with a drop of sap coming out.
I waited for a good five minutes and took several pics to get the drip just right. :)
The old way of gathering sap.
The sap is collected and boiled down in these iron kettles over an open fire.
It was pretty muddy with all the melting going on.
No sunshine this weekend and it's typical March weather but, it's nice to dig back into the archives and see how sunny and warm it was just a year ago.
If you'd like to see my post from last March go here.
I'm linking with the last Sunlit Sunday of the season
Thank you, Karen, for hosting this meme for the winter months.
It has been fun and helped those of us who participated to find some sunlit moments in a long winter.
