Weary of winter, of frost and snow and bitter winds, we've waited so long and (im)patiently for this day. At last it has arrived! Spring has sprung.

Or has it?

Here's what the first day of spring looks like in the middle of Wisconsin. A lake still sheathed in ice:

A gull waiting patiently at the edge of a bit of open water:

Last year's flowers wondering if things will ever warm up again:

Evergreen trees casting long shadows over the (shrinking? Please let it be shrinking!) ice:

Red-twig dogwood providing a pop of cheery color:

A cozy squirrel's nest high in a bare tree:

Spring may not come in with flowers and warm breezes here, but at least we have sunshine and blue skies. (And the hope of flowers to come.)


Happy Spring to my northern-hemisphere readers. And happy Autumn to those of you south of the equator.

    1. Thanks Vicki! Are you sure you don't want any snow? We got about four fresh inches today. Be happy to share. Really. :D
