Over the summer, I loved watching the Tuesday View posts of Eliza’s Garden at her website (which, in turn, is part of a regular feature at Cathy’s blog, Words and Herbs). Inspired by that, I thought it would be interesting to take a weekly picture of our backyard to see how it changes throughout the year. So, every Tuesday, I’ll head back there and take a picture. Then, at the end of the year (if I manage to keep this up), I’ll have 52 pictures to combine into a slideshow of how the yard changes throughout the year!

So far, I have five pictures from January, collected below. You would think that, this being Wisconsin, the yard wouldn’t change much from week to week. Thanks to a warm spell, you’d be very wrong on that point. Our yard looked like spring for a chunk of the month…and then winter returned.
