Turning toward the north from the same corner, these skyscrapers are at least a third shrouded in fog. In the middle is the Aon Center, Chicago's third tallest building at 83 stories and 1,136 feet (346 meters)

Spring is soooo very late, not even the buds on bushes and trees are showing any signs of swelling!

I decided to find window plants, and thought these came out rather fine, thanks to Adobe Photoshop (TM)!

Searching and searching…

…on my mile and a half walk in the cold today, all I could find were these Crocus, at two different places.

Cheerful Yellows!

The flowers are trying, really trying to grow…but the Canadian air sweeping down is So.  Very.  Cold!
