We took an hour to check all the maple buckets before the sap run starts again — and paused to walk in the river, find cool rocks, and try skipping rocks.

Thanking the Maple Trees
First Crocus Flowers – 2023
First Buzzard Sighting – 2023
We were building our log archway this evening, and I thought there were a few geese coming in off the lake … but they were flying strangely (well, strangely for geese anyway). Gliding through the air, I saw five buzzards! They are really early this year (although they were also flying south … so maybe they thought better of hanging out this far north in January?).
