{dirt 60631} What Spring?

{dirt 60631} is a pictorial journal of Yvonne's garden journey in a Zone 5, Chicago city lot.

OK, its time for Spring now! Winter please leave.  Temperatures in the 40's and 7+ inches of rain is not typical mid-May weather.  But then again, this whole winter/spring has not been typical.  A dry October and November meant the ground was a frozen desert for the trees, shrubs and bulbs.  And then, no snow cover to mention (yes, this is Chicago), and a cold, dry March and April.  So it's no surprise that the daffodils, tulips and alliums weren't at their best; some didn't even make an appearance.

However, with all the the rain, the garden is a lush green landscape and the weeds are running rampant due to no attention given to them in this weather.  But, the pots are planted, the grass is mowed, and the birds are raising their young ... all ready for Summer, as it will be here on Friday.  Spring, we miss you!
