"Pastoral scenes in Annapolis Valley featuring apple blossoms, mare and foal, sheep and lambs, goats and kids, and various cattle. A farmer ploughs his land with a span of oxen. Maids in white dance around a maypole while Swain calls on his beloved. The young woman looks out of her window and joins the young man. After discussing the cuteness of a mother hen and her brood, the two stroll hand in hand through the flowering orchard. They sit, kiss, and presumably talk marriage for, cut to church spire. Tilt down to newly weds coming out, being photographed, and leaving on honeymoon in horse and buggy. Strains of "Springtime is Ringtime" by Howard Fogg, and "Everybody's Got That Springy Feeling" by Frank Ewald, can be heard throughout the film."
