Temperatures are rising, flowers are blooming, and Wisconsinites don’t need a calendar to know spring has sprung. From bare midriffs to farm-fresh produce, here are 11 other signs it’s spring in Wisconsin.

Even if it’s still a little chilly outside, you tough it out in a T-shirt. Whether it’s sharing a pitcher with friends at the University of Wisconsin Student Union Terrace, hiking Devil’s Lake, or going for a stroll in the woods up north, if the sun is out, so are you.
