After The Rain

After several beautiful, sunny, warm days, we’re back to cold weather again.  That’s to be expected; I live in Northeast Wisconsin.   It’s just how our weather is here, but that’s ok, it’ll turn warm again soon.  It rained this morning, and I went out in the woods for a walk afterwards and found a some flowers closed up against the cold.

The Purple Ones Are My Favorite…

But I like them all.   I love finding these delicate little flowers peeking up through the leaves.  Every one is a treasure, but of course, the purple ones are best.

The First Wildflower

After much searching in the woods, I finally found an open Hepatica yesterday.  I was pretty happy to find it, considering that the snow still isn’t entirely gone yet.  there are still a few random patches in the woods and we still have snowbanks in the yard.

Another Heart

On one of my walks in the woods over the weekend, I found another “heart”.  I was quite happy to find it, and quite surprised that it took me this long to find it.  I’ve been walking in this same area for years.

Here’s some very welcome signs of spring; pussy willows and a nasty spider.

4 Seasons Manure Spreader

This frame is all that’s left of an old manure spreader that sits on the site of an old homestead in the woods behind our house.  The following pics are shots that I’ve taken of it in all 4 seasons.
