Summer seems like a long time away when you're right in the middle of winter in Wisconsin. There are many standard jokes about the weather here - "Don't like the weather in Wisconsin? Stick around, it'll change." or "There are two season's in Wisconsin - winter and construction." But I do love my native Wisconsin. We have so many beautiful trees. I'm quite fond of all the barns that dot the countryside landscape. Although I despise the really cold weather (below zero), the winter landscapes are very lovely. Unlike some people in Wisconsin, I like the months of January and February. It can be a very peaceful time. It's a good time to read, do crafts, take care of projects. It can also be a good time to have a party. 

But I did think of summer today when I came across some pictures I took at the end of last summer. The flowers are from my back yard and the others are from I drive I took out in the country.
