DID I SHAVE MY LEGS FOR THIS ?
You bet'cha ! The first 70 degree day in Chicago in six months and I'm searching for my long-stored away shorts. My Florida February tan has almost faded in the two long wintry months since I've been back.
After I posted my Bloom Day for April the daffodils started to open their cheerful yellow faces to soak up the abundant sunshine. Murphy's law certainly applies here. I suppose my Forsythia and Crabapple will follow suit today.
Yesterday was nice and I was doing a Spring clean-up of an urban frontyard on a very busy street. It's amazing how many passersby will stop and chat when they see a gardener working in their yard. " About time ! , wonderful day to garden, are you planting the annuals yet?, do you think Spring is finally here ? " The one I liked was the guy who asked " Hey, lady you need any help.?" I just smiled and replied, " I am the help. "
I have a few gardens to visit today which is always a pleasure for me. I'm also taking my trusty camera to capture any Spring beauties I might meet along the way.
Welcome to Chicago ; Spring . So glad you decided to visit and hope you'll stay awhile.
