It's pouring out — again! but it did abate for much of the day yesterday, so we took the opportunity to head out to Wheelers Sugar Bush with friends.
You may be able to glimpse the bird feeder beyond Ivy's head below, and while we munched a lovely Rose-Breasted Grosbeak came and fed for ever so long. We just looked, enjoyed and didn't take pictures — for once.
As usual, we briefly toured the boiler room. The season is over, but there were many barrels of maple syrup in the the left foreground, only a few of which are visible, but you get the idea.
We didn't remember seeing this cross-stitch before.
While the others toured the museums, I walked the trail in search of photo ops, hoping to catch the faint leafing out that begins in this season. I snapped quite a few, but with a gray day, they were poor, so I trashed them all when I got back home.
I did, however, take this photo although I have shot similar ones in the past. White Rose was a one-time Canadian company, and you all know about the famous Model T.
I shot it as an HDR, which I won't bother explaining right now, but it served to help me boost the exposure in the gloomy garage.
Now, it's pouring again, which reminds me of a line in the kids' gospel chorus, The Wise Man Built His House Upon the Rock: "the rains came down and the floods came up." It is becoming a serious concern in some areas. I have never seen the like.
