Frost In Wisconsin!*!*! & our backyard...

YES, we woke up to Frost this morning...  Low 30's!*!*!  Living only 3 miles from Lake Michigan we get the strangest weather!!!  I envy those of you who have Lilacs Blooming...  As you can see from the pic below, we have hardly any buds on our trees...  No flowers in the garden yet... 

 Fog and Frost in our backyard "April 23rd"!!!!!!!


There are subtle signs of of "mallow" coming up in my little flower garden area...
Flower Gardening is a challenge for us... DEER EAT EVERYTHING!!!  We found "liquid fence" a safe and quite effective solution to get us by...


My husband enjoys many a fire while he's working in the yard...  I love looking at it from the house at night while it's burning...

  1. What a fantastic view and a beautiful yard! Here in the Western part of Racine county all the trees popped open this week. I guess it truly is "cooler near the lake".

  2. Burrrrr.... Wow that sounds so cold. Yes , I grew up about 5 blocks from Lake Michigan and boy the weather was damp and cold... I love Cedarburg...I think if I moved back to Wisc. its where I would want to be. Close enough to Milwaukee yet far enough away. I love all the shops and the place where the blacksmith shop is..also that lovely little creek...your lucky!!
