Wishing for Summer

How many of you find yourselves pining for the gentler summer months, with longer days, warmer breezes, and the fun and time with your family that it brings? I know I am. Winter in Wisconsin can be fun, but at times I find myself wishing for summer. Spring, summer and fall are all beautiful where I live, and while reminiscing for the warmer, gentler months I found myself looking through some photographs that I took last October down by the Lake Wingra boat house.

I don’t know about everyone else, but warm and sunny days like that one in October seem pretty appealing right now. In contrast, the trees are bare and it’s so cold that the smoke from smokestacks rises briefly and then falls towards the ground.
