On the Road Friday ~ Winter in a Backyard of Wisconsin

 Happy Friday!
Today we are on the road, to our front and back yard.
Our first real snow storm of the season was perfect snow for building a snow man.
What a handsome fella...looks like someone is jealous of me and Mr. Snowman.
 We put bird food on Mr. Snowman's mittens, top of his hat and around his scarf.
Can you spot the chickadee on Mr. Snowman in the next photo?
"Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home." 
Edith Sitwell

Our snow is melting and we are to have highs of 45° for the weekend.
Giving me, SpRiNg FeVeR

Have a great weekend!

  3. The grand-children are quite envious of all that snow ...
