Is it Spring yet?

Warmer days – shorter nights

As Valentine’s Day approaches is chocolate the answer?  The temps are in the 40’s and this winter is looking like we might get by with minimal disruptions from Mother Nature.  The groundhog said six more weeks of winter, but it sure is feeling warmer, the days are longer and who knows – can the tulips be far behind?  Or has the winter just caused my brain to short circuit?

Beerntsen’s assorted gift box

 

Here in Wisconsin chocolate is usually a safe bet for giving.  We have some of the best and unique chocolate for your Valentine’s sweetie.  From assorted gift boxes to the unusual http://www.wisconsinmade.com/ can help.

Early spring!

If you need to get a jump on the excitement of an early spring we can help.  Our spring bulb baskets bring a little spring indoors and get the season off to that early start.  Watch them grow and blossom!  Every day is a treat with these spring bulbs.

Hope you are anticipating the spring thaw, flowers and warmer temps like we are.

Here in Wisconsin winter is usually a bit longer than some of us would prefer.  But this year in mid-December the temps are in the 40’s.  There is no snow on the ground.  Walks outdoors around the neighborhood are pleasant.  And each pleasant day like this gets us one day closer to March.
