Maple Syrup day ...

This past weekend was spent at one of our families favourite spot ...
a yearly tradition ...
Maple Syrup day ♥
The entire day spent walking, talking, taking lots of photos, tractor rides, maple EVERYTHING,
pancake and maple syrup breakfast in the barn ... and most importantly ... making memories ♥♥
We look forward to this day every year!

 
And then of course there are the animals ...
 and it's instant love...
watching this precious lamb as he stood and walked towards the sunlight.
His precious little face as he stood with his eyes closed, chin tilted slightly
and just stood ~ taking in the warmth of the sunlight.
Melting my heart with such gentle beauty xoxo

where we come from in Britain sheep are everywhere. In Canada I rarely see them. Lambing season and daffodils always remind me of when our son was born in April, such a joyous time.

Your maple syrup day sounds like such fun! It makes me think of the wonderful painting by Grandma Moses. And the last photo made my heart swell! just beautiful.

I love that quote by Walt Whitman too Deb. That little lamb is too cute! I'm so happy to read that you were able to visit one of your favorite places again and enjoy time with your family. Come on over to Idaho and I will give you a tractor ride too. If I can remember how to start the old John Deere that is :)))
sending hugs....
