Sucrerie de la Montagne

For the sap to start flowing in the spring, temperatures have to be just right. Freezing temperatures at night and above zero during the day… so for the past week, the sap has been flowing in this region. The Sucrerie de la Montagne, situated in Rigaud, is open all-year round and tourists from all over the world come in huge buses to have a taste of this golden liquid.

Pour que la sève d’érable coule à flot, les nuits doivent être sous zéro et le jour au-dessus… dans la dernière semaine elle coule bien. La Sucrerie de la Montagne, située à Rigaud, est ouverte à l’année longue et des touristes du monde entier arrivent en gros autobus pour goûter ce sirop doré.

    Allô Lynn,
    merci pour les couleurs — il faisait un bon bout que je n’avais pas utilisé la couleur Indigo… que j’adore! Et il fait de très beaux gris, en passant. Toutes mes couleurs sont de WN sauf pour le Burnt Orange qui est de Daniel Smith. Merci pour ton commentaire ;-)

      Hi Shari,

      thank you for the comment. When I opened my old palette I saw my Indigo which I went crazy on last summer as I really loved its intensity. So I decided to try it out, and wow! It makes fantastic greys…. yeah!

    Très beau choix de couleur Jane, tout en douceur. Est-ce que ce sont des couleurs WN?
    Vivement le printemps et le temps des sucres!
