What can possibly compete with HONEY
MAYBE MAPLE SYRUP MAN WILL GIVE US A TOUR…
KATHY AT THE EVAPORATER MAKING SURE THE TEMPERATURE AND LEVEL OF SAP IS JUST RIGHT.
For me going into nature is one way I live a spiritual lifestyle. I feel the man that has gathered sap has led a purposeful life. To be in touch with the bee and the tree as they go about their business of making honey and sap is a blessing in my life today and for that I am grateful. God’s Grace and an Attitude of Gratitude makes for a wonderful day to be alive.
AS WE HEAD BACK TO THE LAND OF MILK AND HONEY
What a wonderful post, Joe! Love your snowy shadow shots and the Maple Man! And then the last shot takes me right off to heaven!! Lovely colors and reflections! Fantastic post for the day!
Mmmmm. Honey. Oh and mmmm. Maple Syrup. Now I want some flap jacks to go with that!! Yummy Shadow Shots.
I absolutely love that first shot! That is too cute! Honey and maple syrup...yum!
The maple leaves a delicious sap that when cooked down makes for a tasty syrup. We once went to our local nature center for a tour of and the making of syrup. And at the end of the tour, warm maple syrup on vanilla ice cream. Such a treat! To bad it is so expensive, because pure maple makes a stack of pancakes so much better than the other kind...
I too love bees, Joe, and used to relax by sitting in the midst of a friend's many hives listening to the bees and smelling all the wonderful fragrances.
LOL! I did not know we had montsers roaming around at the Dawes. Good picture of the Honey Wagon,I could not get one. The show was smaller this year Joe. I was a little let down but I guess the economy is hitting everyone.
That is one groovey looking car and a great advert for honey! I love the lst photo - it looks a magical place.

Oh yeah. Now you're talking. Nature's sweetener. Isn't our God amazing? I love everything about the whole honey-making process. Especially the dancing of the bees to tell the others where to go for nectar.... Sweet. Thanks for a Great Post. Enjoyed all of it.
