Maine Maple Sunday

The 4th Sunday in March is always Maine Maple Sunday. The sap's a-runnin'!

Below is an article explaining Maine Maple Sunday.When you think of sugar houses and fresh maple syrup you might think, "Vermont" or New Hampshire" but Maine is right up there with production.  Since 2010, the article states, "Syrup production has more than doubled and the industry brings $48.7 million to Maine’s economy." Plus, fresh maple syrup is yummy!

Sugar houses statewide celebrate Maine Maple Sunday all weekend

Here are a couple of pics I took some years ago when I lived in Maine. I took them with my Lomo camera.

We have a dear friend in Maine, a sweet brother in Christ, who taps his trees and sends me a quart of maple syrup for my late-April birthday every year! I consider it liquid gold...tastes like Maine. :)

Speaking of Maine, my parents will be married 60 years this summer and want to take the train to Maine in the fall to celebrate...they only visited us in the summers and at Christmas so they never saw the leaves. My son and I are going to accompany them, LORD willing, and we are thrilled to death - we can't wait to get back to our favorite place on earth. I'm thinking of buying one way tickets. :D

"liquid gold" I love that description. It's so apt!! Wow, a trip by train to see the leaves, sounds absolutely lovely!! What a wonderful thing to plan for and anticipate. Congratulations on your parents' upcoming anniversary!
