Remember when it seemed like spring was going to arrive finally in the Twin Cities? Remember that one sunny day before the rain, and then the rain and then MORE RAIN?

Snapped this closeup of the tip of a lilac bush turning green and unfurling.

Waiting for Edward Hopper

Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad.

Kept a rollin' all night long

Last weekend I had the pleasure of spending a night on the Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad, a bed & breakfast train based in Spooner, Wisconsin, about two hours northeast of the Twin Cities. Still snow on the ground in them there parts. This shot was taken on a foggy Sunday morning just before sunrise.

Double cone

Typical fickle April weather in Minnesota: a handful of days that make a person believe spring has finally arrived, then suddenly it's feeling like November again.
Spotted these two during a walk Sunday morning.
