Spring has sprung...and now it's gone...

Our spring, it seems, was shortlived here. We went from winter to spring, for about four whole days (I'm exaggerating a little but not much), to heat wave and then right back to spring. Or maybe we only get the two really hot days this summer and now we've already moved on to fall like weather. Who knows? I just don't understand how it can possibly be 97 degrees one day and 60 the very next. My dad says, "Meh, that's Wisconsin for ya." These beautiful blooms adorned the trees in our yard but two weeks ago. They lasted a couple days and were blown off by not so gentle spring winds. Pumpkin calls them "popcorn" in reference to a song she loves about "popcorn popping on the apricot tree".
Now school is out for the summer...we have those long, lazy, warm days to look forward to. Yesterday evening a quick storm blew through and we were left with this:
Ahhhhh, I hope there are many more nights like this.
