Show Me Some Green

14 Mar

March 14 is still winter in Chicago, but Mother Nature has spoiled us. We haven’t had any significant snowfall since mid December. Not that we haven’t had some very cold days, but coupled with sunny and warm days, our boots have dried and been pushed to the back of the closet. Many spring flowers have poked through the winter ground and spring buds have begun to grace the trees.

Until now. Here’s how the morning greeted us.


Why are some of us a bit disappointed?

It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want — oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer, Detective

Exactly. So here’s some green to enjoy while awaiting the actual arrival of spring.




And if that doesn’t quite do it, try this.


As the proverb says…No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.

      Yes, much snow here, but not as much as the east coast. And you are very welcome!

    Everything is weird this year. Here we had lots of cold rain with dams overflowing. Suddenly it turned on a dime and went immediately from the 50s to the 90s and every tree and bush suddenly popped open.
    I would have preferred having a proper Spring. Hope you get the nice Spring I remembered from living back East.

      Agreed – a proper spring is always a good thing. We seemed to be having one before the last few days, so hopefully it will return soon.

    Thanks for the memories……….Heard it has been that strange in T.O.too! Here in Acapulco it is the same old brilliant sun and blue skies daily, for us fortunate few!
    Warm regards!
