Wisconsin Barns and Good Fences



Barn SW of Chetek, WI
Springtime, 2016

It's beautiful countryside up here, folks, and you can't imagine how happy I am that the snow is gone. We drove out of snow that was in Westby and north to NO SNOW. I hear we're supposed to suffer a relapse on Thursday, but that should just be temporary. Spring is truly on its way to northwestern Wisconsin. The red wing blackbirds and robins have returned, and I'll be looking for springing beauties and May flowers in the woods when it gets a bit warmer. Daffodils, lily of the valley, and lilacs coming soon.

Love that barn and the way the fence leads to it.

I know exactly how happy you are to see the snow gone. We are close behind you. Even brown grass looks good. :) "Happy Birthday, to your sweet grand." Deb

Hello, Happy Birthday to your sweet Lucy! I love the barn and flowers, great photos. I am glad the snow and winter is over too. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

I made the doll and her hat and clothes for Lucy's auntie many years ago. I don't think there's a drop of Irish blood in our ancestry, but I loved the doll pattern.

Sweet photo of Grandpa and Lucy - happy birthday to her! I love your pretty barn photo and I'm thankful spring is coming to your area!

Congratulations, you made it through another Wisconsin winter! You're probably used to it, but I'm sure I would wimp out about halfway through. I'm most definitely better suited to our warmer climate.

Tom said...

Lots of treasures in your life Judy. I'm sure that Lucy is one of your prized treasures. Thanks for joining this week and please come back soon.

Hi Judy!

Such beautiful photos. Loved catching up on your Texas photos too. Sorry about your cousin. So sad - especially when so unexpected.

Congrats on the news about your family moving back to WI though! It is wonderful to feel Spring starting to show real signs now. It won't be long. ;)

And your grandkiddos are so adorable!! Sweet Oliver and Happy bday to Lucy!

Blessings on your week ahead. xoxo

Hi Judy... the Mr. and I just re-did our wills because they were 15 years old and done in another state. Our girls were very attentive to us when they heard we were re-doing them. hmmmm...Have a great week!

All the best Jan

Happy Birthday Lucy..Love the barn photo..We may have flurries on Sat..It was in the 60's today but we have some freezing temps in our future, it seems...

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Happy birthday to Lucy! I love your barn photos. We are getting rain, here on the IL/WI border, extreme NE Illinois. It is actually a tiny bit humid!

Gayle atMuldoon said...

March is going out like a windy lion here but no snow--yay. Enjoyed your WI photos today.

That barn could almost look like a church! It reminds me of the pitch of the roof on the garage my dad built and neighbors teased him there was a choir loft up there. He was just copying Wmsbg but most of the garages in that area had almost flat roofs.

Ida said...

Very nice barn/fence scene. I'm happy you are seeing signs of spring there now. Lucy is super cute.

Tanya Breese said...
