Spring Countdown16

Legend has it that Chief Woksis sent a tomahawk whirling through the air – only to hit the trunk of a large Maple tree. The sweet water poured out and filled his birch  vessel. The sugar birds (crows), returning from the south, summoned the warm days and cool nights thus inviting the sugar water to flow and sweeten the dark days away.
