Photos by Karl – April 2013
Karl took these photos in April 2010.
We are seeing many plants and flowers on display in stores. It is very cold here, and we buy a few groceries and walk around. We stopped at Caan’s in Sheboygan, to see what plants they are beginning to grow in their large greenhouse. I noted the geraniums. Our poinsettia from there is still beautiful, and we remember when they were growing the poinsettias as well. We bought a Christmas cactus on sale for half-price, that is just beginning to bloom. We are also visiting thrift stores.
At Walmart in Sheboygan, we bought a small tulip planter that is just beginning to form flowers. And fresh flowers there and at Mentink’s Piggly Wiggly in Oostburg. So a lily blooms in the house, along with carnations.
Cold days, with ice floating in Lake Michigan. And Spring in the stores.
the day is young
and no hurry

By the time the weather is summer-warm here, by Lake Michigan, plants are on sale. We bought the mandevilla plant at The Home Depot in Kohler, Wisconsin. New for me this year.
