Buds

I got very little sap today. Some trees are still going, but many have shut down. The Red Maples and Poplars are budding, which is a sure sign the season is closing. If true, I’ll probably get about 3 gallons of syrup this year, which is a quarter of last year’s crop. It got so warm and stayed warm this year that the trees decided spring was here. I hope they are right.

The equinox is coming up soon. I looked for the sun to set in the notch of our east/west road tonight, but the clouds prevented me from seeing it. I’ll try again tomorrow night. It amazes me to think that everyone on the planet sees the same east/west rise and set only on the two equinoxs.
