Spring, maple syrup and friends!

I absolutly love springtime!

In Qu├ębec, after a hard winter we celebrate by getting the family together for an outing to a local sugar shack. Maple syrup is so much a part of our heritage that it is unthinkable not to have an Easter brunch with maple syrup and ham.

This year  spring has sprung early and to prove it...we have our canada geese that have arrived to nest on our pond. The milder weather also gets us out of our hibernation mode and we start visiting friends close and far.
Today I had a break from work and enjoyed lunch at the maple pavillion with Claude and Suzanne. After we inspected the gardens and found the magnolia trees just about to bloom, the first tulips and daffadils in full bloom and this beautiful Canada goose just waiting for Claude to take his picture.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!!
