Almost overnight!

The past 48 hours have been quite warm, with daytime temps in the 80s (F.), which really brought Spring early this morning.

These first two images are from my window…that gorgeous ‘Spring green’ color was not there last evening!

As I walked up Sheridan Road (so happy I did NOT take the bus to my appointment!), this flower-covered tree really stood out!

Trees are leafing out everywhere, though the Maples and Oaks are slower.  It is said there will be no more frosts once the leaves of the Maples have emerged…we’ll see!

Here are some Tulips in-a-row.  If they look familiar, it’s because an image of the same row appears in the previous post (scroll down and check for yourself!), which I took about the same time just two days ago!

I kind of thought they’d be yellow!

  1. nice to see green at last 1000 (although I do like snow), but it is surprising how fast it comes on once it starts – our garden needs a good weeding and tidying up so that’s my work sorted for this week 😦

    • Gardeners have just begun to clean their patches here, smacked…and today’s temps were about 30 degrees colder. Wish, though, that I could just ‘pop over’ and help you all with the weeding, trimming and planting?!?

      Don’t work too hard, as even your ‘thirty-five year old back’ can get strained a bit–giggle!

    • And it is still cold (for being at the end of the first week of May), Leanne! The winds have been off the lake almost every day, and the lake is so very cold, that the temps here are 10 degrees or so cooler than just 5 blocks to the west. We could sure use some nice southerly breezes, but all we seem to be getting are the ‘chills’ from the north and northeast!
