Contrast in Springs

This was one year ago this week-April 8-15, 2012.  It was a beautiful warm spring in Wisconsin.

This is the week of April 6, 2013.  Snow in the morning.  This is probably more typical, but we were spoiled last year.

Plants barely showing

Bushes just starting to get green

Irises just starting to come up

There is nothing more to say.  Hopefully in a month or so we can catch up.  We are all so ready for


  1. The dog looks healthy but why is he out there? Do you have a humane society? I would send them the photo in case someone lost their dog. And the inside joke is, No I dont need another rescue!!

  2. I have seen him before. This is the country, strange dogs and cats wander through all the time. People don't worry about that They just let the pets outside and they go home eventually. If he starts spending the night on our porch or hangs around, then I can look into it. He has a collar.
