…it seems Summer lingers on…
…and everyone seems to succumb to ‘Garden Fever’!
Last Saturday, I needed to visit the local hardware store–the only one in the neighborhood!–at Clark Street and Devon Avenue (pronounced “Duh-vahn” here for some reason), aptly called ‘Clark and Devon Hardware‘.
I was surprised to find these outside the entryway:
Even more surprising was the community garden just beyond the parking lot!
It’s really heartening to see these small community gardens come alive here in Chicago, and especially to see that the gardeners are ‘twenty-somethings’, perhaps taking their first try at growing their own healthy food!

I spent quite a few hours digging out old caulk above my bathroom sink and around the tub.
And yes, I am tired…but not too tired to show you the beauties captured the other day in the parkway in front of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Emil Bach House!
Lastly, these were quite a surprise:
As we are in the last week of April, and its flower-bringing showers, I hope all you gardeners out there are also seeing some marvelous Flora…at last!
