The First Day of Spring

This is March 19, the last day of winter.  Temperature in the upper 60's.

 This is March 20, the first day of Spring,
temps in the '30's
What's wrong with this picture?  Nothing.  It's just how the weather is in Chicago.

  1. Tell me about it! However, your Bergenia looks great. I grew it at my other house and it never look this good. Happy Spring!


  2. It's not even April first, and already the weather is practicing its Poissons d'Avril (April Fool's) jokes. Not Funny. Hope it melts very quickly, and spring begins her dance anew.

  3. Wow ... hard for someone like me, from the tropics, to get their head around such a change! Our changes is relatively minor.

  4. Happy 'Topsy-turvy' Spring, dear Carolyn!

  5. LOL! I laughed at your last comment "It's just how the weather is in Chicago.". I used to live there and I concur.

    but I think Lake Michigan makes up for all of it :)
