Friends of the Richelieu. A river. A passion.

"Tout cedit pays est fort uny, remply de forests, vignes & noyers. Aucuns Chrestiens n'estoient encores parvenus jusques en cedit lieu, que nous, qui eusmes assez de peine à monter le riviere à la rame. " Samuel de Champlain

"All this region is very level and full of forests, vines and butternut trees. No Christian has ever visited this land and we had all the misery of the world trying to paddle the river upstream." Samuel de Champlain

The colors of Spring

The colors of Spring

The Barberries are showing their green fuzz. The Blue Bells rolled out their carpet of sky. The Trillium's finally found the courage to lift up their red faces for all to see, while the yellow Daffodils nod in the warm breeze.

The Tulip buds are just about ready to burst without giving a hint of their tint, and some Violets are just starting to unfurl their petals of white and purple.

The Maple tree is in full scarlet bloom, and the lilacs may just take a chance this weekend and open their buds to the sunshine.

The Cottontails are eating the Dandelions as fast as the leaves unfurl, but the Rhubarb's curly heads are still untouched.

'tis a busy Spring for those who take the time to ponder...
