There Be Flowers

May tulips, finally.

The yellow ones came up on a hillside.

The lone Mr. Tom left to guard the yard. He works hard at his job.

Last nights sunset.

Spring Flowers Up Last Week

We finally got our daffodils coming up last and this week. There are leaf buds on everything else. The wild field lilies are also up.

Snow under the trees has been gone for two and a half weeks now. It did snow 1/4 of an inch Sunday morning two weeks ago. We had a low 22 degrees F. that morning and 20's the next couple of day before we went back into the 30's at night. Now we're up to high 30's and low 40's at night.

9 May, it got to 70 degrees today. Hubby is doing better after his surgery last week. He goes back to the doctor this coming Monday for his post op visit.

Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning of the chicken coop that is.

The ice and snow finally melted back going up the hill to the coop, so it was time to give it it's big cleaning.

There are a lot of small projects that need to be done around here now. The bigger projects that take longer and are major time takers make the little ones add up. Sooner or later everything will get done, hopefully :).

Lots of rain the last couple of weeks and a couple of snow, but the snow didn't stay even for a day. The tulip and daffodil leaves are several inches out of the ground at this point. Which is nice as some years we don't see them until May.

Only a few drifts left

We have had lots of rain and only one day where it snowed off and on. Supposed to have a couple nights where it does but we are ahead of the snow melt compared to last year.

Else we are pretty well snow free but not mud wise lol. The creek is running really well.

Hubby cleaned out the chimney to be safe for the rest of the season.

Lots Of Melting Going On

I'd say we have lost 2 and a 1/2 feet of snow in the last week and a half. More where the sun hits.
Not to much more going on right now, just plugging away with 
the day to day stuff.

How about a blast from the past.
My dad Gil outside of their log cabin in the 1930's Northern Wisconsin. I think that is his little sister Virla beside him. It must have been spring and warming up as Grandma Ruby had the house airing out. (There was still snow on the ground) And yes his hat is the inside of a helmet.

We Can See Ground & Spring Birds

The birds are out and about like crazy.

 This was 1st wood pecker I saw out on one of our side trees and I have been hearing them today.
