The In-Between S*E*A*S*O*N*S BLAHS...

Greetings from the 
F*R*O*Z*E*N  State of Wisconsin...

The hardest part of WINTER,
 here in the Midwest,
 is the time just after Valentine's Day...

 HONESTLY,
Pictures of Birds... Vintage Garden... Fresh Flowers...
 Green Plants...  JUST ISN'T DOING IT FOR ME!!!
  
The REALITY of Winter, here in the Midwest,
 is that S*P*R*I*N*G is  STILL
a LONG WAY OFF ~ about 6-8 weeks...

Yet Another Time of Stillness
WHILE * WE * WAIT
 COME MID APRIL, Signs of Faith & Hope
 REALLY start appearing...
• "Hints of grass" Poking-Out
 in between the cracks in the sidewalk...
•First Garden Hose Sighting of the Season!!! ~ YES!*!*!
•Daffodils - Tulips Poking through the black dirt...
•Birdies Singing like never before...
A*N*D
•That 1st Sighting of a Sea-Of-White Tents at the Flea!!!

Until then, WE JUST W*A*I*T...
