glorious.



It snowed for hours yesterday, froze last night, and snow is coming again tonight. But it doesn't matter. It is April, it is Wisconsin, and it is Spring. Which means that beauty comes with a toughness to endure this weather. It isn't big and flashy yet - that will come - but it is there if you get close and pay attention. And it is glorious.






"April comes like an idiot, babbling and strewing flowers."

April can be a difficult month to endure ~ the weather is so fickle.

You handle it with such grace!

Your photographs are glorious indeed.

We had snow here too but it melted as soon as it hit the ground. Spring will be here soon, I Hope. Great photos!

Just since the last couple of days we're moving from "mostly snow" to "mostly rain". That's promising!
Soon there will be tulips... and lilacs... and lettuces and spinach big enough to eat...

We don't have snow, just rain, rain and more rain. We're getting a few days of (relatively) dry weather. Spring is starting to spring!
