Is there any movement? I think so. It spit snow this morning but  currently the temp is 36 and possibly rising. The vacuum pump is on and the guys are snowshoeing the lines, following the bubbles.

Open House Weekend sparkled. Hundreds indulged in sugar-on-snow, prepared from Friday's batch of syrup. The trees offered us beautiful sap in the nick of time.

Climbing Rhymers:
Not averse to
more verse from the
tip of the tongue,
of the pencil?
Your choice: silly
or filled with gems
of sound friendships.
Ahem. Write on.

In reference to the post “Climbing Rhyme Sunday Summit,” I have enjoyed reading aloud the verses submitted in the comment box.  So far,the ‘s’ sounds are popular, in particular the soft ‘s’ sounds as in the words As, Appease, Lies. Have you tried rapping these verses? It works.

Submission Suggestion: Follow the senses: what do you taste, smell, hear, touch, see? Unbutton that shirt, stay loose.

To Henry Lavanway

What do I see
at the tree on
the steep bank? A
circle, space at
the base, exposed
bare ground, snow pulled
back, snow receded,
showing dead leaves,
roots fed by snow
melt.
My old friend
always mentioned
that when tree wells
form, THEN
the sap will run.
