Spring In Milwaukee

Oh- Can you believe that it is almost Spring?
You all know I am staying 
with my daughter's family
to help with new little Bright Eyes.
It is cold all over our whole state.
BUT
Look what's happening in Milwaukee 
TODAY!
Yes!  Today!
Oh- Green- I see GREEN!
Do you see it? 
Do you see GREEN?
Are YOU tired of the cold and bad winter weather?
Want to see more?
Well, hop aboard the local train....
What?  What do you mean what's going on here?
Well, maybe I AM DREAMING!
It is still snowy and cold outside and I may be 
living in a DREAM WORLD.
A dream world full of grids and girders.
See them?
Ah- A little kingdom of green and growing things.
Too bad the OUTSIDE looks like THIS:
You can read about the domes here.
Of course, 
EVERY GREEN REALM
needs a little Irish lass to rule it.
Soon she will be boss of 
her own little kingdom here,
Including, but not limited to,  
these THREE SUBJECTS.
They'll never know what hit them!
But right now she needs a nap...
BIG YAWN---
Being the ruler of 
THE KINGDOM is hard work.
Especially for a six day old baby!
Amen!

  1. Oh Diana, Bright Eyes is beautiful and of course she's the little ruler of her Kingdom! Her subjects will be at her beck and call...probably forever!! Adorable family and sweet post! Spring will be here before you know it and no more dreaming of it, I'm hoping!!
    Hugs,
    Nancy

  6. So true! They'll never know what hit'em. Oh a Flower and Garden show. What a nice way to escape winter for a bit.

  7. Diana, You were dreaming for sure. Speaking of dreams...that is a little dreamboat of an Irish lass. If that baby girl is half as cute as her brothers , she'll still be a total beauty. Your little ones are adorable. Six days old , so cute. How can you even put her down.LOL Hope everyone is well and getting some rest. xoxo,Susie

  10. Oh so sweet and sleepy. SC below looks delighted with her new cousin too. Those gardens are gorgeous under the domes. What a lovely pic of the little princess's subjects!! Enjoy your time with baby and family.

  11. Bright Eyes is indeed the ruler of her kingdom! The photos are precious!

  12. Yes, I'm sure she will have the males in the family wrapped around her little finger in no time, Diana!

  13. Ooooohh, such a GREAT REMINDER of "home"! It's been years since I've been to the Domes...and when I lived in Milwaukee, I went often. I often wish I still lived in Milwaukee...where I grew up. I've been in MIchigan for nearly 9 years and still find it hard to call it home. I mean REALLY home.

    Hugs,
    Jan

  14. That is the cutest little Irish lass !!!
    Those domes look very much like the U.S pavillion here ( still standing ) from Expo 67 ( Montreal !!! )
    It's supposed to be beautiful here for the next few days - but they're calling for flurries on the weekend -
    please don't let it last as long as last winter!
    Have a good one!
    XOXO

  15. It looks like she is saying "get this heavy thing off my head, now!":) Is that you I see in the caboose?

  17. You have to send those pictures into a magazine for a contest - they are EXCELLENT! And it is spring.

  18. I know you must think the world is nothing but white outside everywhere. I know I would if I lived with snow all Winter long. I hope that the green will finally find you and you will get some relief. Afterall, it is March, right?!

  19. Love the Irish lassie! (and company). ♥ I'd love to visit the domes in Milwaukee some winter, but it's so far away. Did you know you could fit all of England inside Wisconsin????? Have a wonderful day, Diana!

  20. Keep thinking those springtime thoughts, Diana! Maybe that will bring on some signs of spring where you are! I've never seen any Irish lads or lassies that are more fetching than yours! Beauties - all of them! xo Nellie

  21. Spring is just around the corner, but it is on the cold side. Whopping 36 degrees, but we are suppose to get 66 by afternoon. We will have to wait and see. What a beautiful family and she will be queen and ruler of the family. Big brothers will definitely look after her all through her life. It never stops. Sweet Cheeks is precious holding Bright Eyes. Grandma has a very precious family. Have a great day and they have very good friends to feed you all. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  25. Diana, I can always count on a laugh or two when I come to visit you! Bright eyes is just so cute! I wish our kids had "Back" buttons that I could push every now and then to make them babies again, for just a few hours... oh, the memories. Bright eyes has so many adventures awaiting her and Big Brothers are a big part of her family! Thank you for sharing this wonderful time with me, I enjoy your blog so much! xxoo back to ya!

  26. Oh she will have them all under her spell. That last picture is so cute that it made me smile and laugh out loud......and I needed that. Thanks for your comment yesterday. So hard. We spend time with our son last night and Hubby will again tonight. Keeping a close eye on hi, so we can ward off another break down. (((((HUGS)))))

  41. Oooo...I have been off planning and having a wedding and you added a baby!! How perfectly precious! We were in Florida where everything was green outside and they had flowers and blooming trees. Needless to say, coming back to Illinois wasn't easy. Flip-flops one day and boots the next! I'm going to go read more about THE BABY!!

  53. This is the second comment I have written tonight about how much I envy your having grandchildren. I don't say anything to my kids (neither are married), but they know I can't wait.

    You new grand is adorable.

  54. How is it possible that that baby just keeps getting cuter. I'm sure she is definitely the queen. Now let's do a chant for SPRING!!!! It's finally here and that means all of your snow is bound to melt soon. xo Laura

  55. What a perfectly beautiful little princess! I'm sure she already has everyone wrapped around her adorable little finger. Those pictures iside the domes have me practically panting here for spring! We had freezing rain last night and most of the regions schools closed. Ugh!! I am so sick of this!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. It looks like she's ready to start giving orders, already. So precious!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm behind but I just wanted to say she's absolutely precious. All your grands are beautiful. Have fun loving them up. Happy 1st day of spring!

    ReplyDelete
  58. The crown is very fitting for your beautiful princess!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I've been catching up with your blog posts and have to say what an adorable family you have. Little bright eyes is amazing. Love her crown. She will always have a crown on whether it can be visibly seen or not. My husband is in Prague this week and the first thing he said when he called was how green it is over there. Have a wonderful day Diana.
