Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

It's 89 Degrees, I THINK It is Now Safe - - -


To say "spring" and even "snow" on the Frozen Tundra without bringing that white stuff back down on our heads.

I THINK it is safe - - - after all, we DID have a frost last week.

As Fisherhubby and I trundle around our state, everywhere we go we see signs that spring is really and truly finally here.

Our summer friends, like this Sandhill Crane, which I call the Emu of Wisconsin, are back.

Wild turkeys are "frisky" in the fields.

The ground is covered with wild flowers

Like these trilliums.

Fisherhubby scratched his way into the undergrowth
To snap this close-up shot.

He is dauntless in the face of wood ticks.

I am not.

Even flowering trees are. (Flowering, of course.)

And as we drove up hill and down dale,

My eyes feasted on the palate,
The palate of a plethora of shades of green.

And so, with reckless abandon, I declare that spring, Spring, SPRING is.finally here and we shall see no more of snow until the next winter winds blow.

And I say, "bravo to that"!
I am one of those who loves the warmer weather! Pretty pics my dear,

Well, let's be hoping it sticks. The GOOD weather, that is, not any late season snow. And I love those "emus."

My kind of day. I enjoyed riding along with you on this outing. I am with you, I do not want a tick on me. I have had more than my share when growing up. My how they itch!

It's about time it showed up. It's looking really pretty in the Frozen Tundra!

Great photos! I have never heard of a sand hill crane! I learn something new everyday blog hopping around! Thanks for sharing!

Grace said...

Loved your photos and I admire you as you must be a sturdy girl to endure that weather where you live!
I found it interesting that your Sand Hill Cranes are a different color than ours here in Florida. Ours are gray and the ones in your picture look like they are brown. I followed you on your GFC I can keep up with your blog and perhaps someday we will exchange pictures of our Sandhill Cranes that are different in color (LOL)
Thanks for coming by and visiting my blog

Thanks for stopping by my blog this evening. Hope you are having a great Memorial Day/evening. Gorgeous nature pics. So glad summer is here, but not ready for the melting heat that it brings.

Congratulations. You photos are terrific.

It is only fair that Spring finally arrived in your neck of the woods, Winter hit here early and it isn't right that we both freeze!

Random piece of information: the town I grew up in was named after wild turkeys!

BEAUTIFUL countryside pictures! I love all of the green and the wildflowers! I am happy that SPRING is finally showing up in your neck of the woods:) No more snow for you dear Keetha until Winter!

Have a blessed day my friend, HUGS!

Some friends waiting for a transplant here in JAX are from Montana. It was reported to them a few days ago that they were still getting snow. I don't think I could take it.

So happy that you are seeing the Spring Green!!!! Yaaahooo!
