You Call This Spring?

Just because they've started playing baseball, doesn't mean Spring has actually unpacked its bags here in Chicago.

You can tell that spring is trying to break through Chicago's winter wall, and it's getting there.

In Lake Zurich, a sign is posted to assure us that it's here ... but, the sign is has a layer of snow on it.

Daffodils bow to the snowfall, but spring back to life when the snow melts away.

You would think we should be swinging by now! from Jerry in Braidwood
Seen around dawn today on my monring walk in Geneva, along the Fox River. The poor daffodils looked as if they were trying to hide! Pam Becker St. Charles, IL 630-377-3777

April 5th 2009, brought an interesting twist to this spring so far.. And the daffodils took in personally. Aurora, IL
It's hard to be patient in April.

Who would have thought we would wake up one morning in April to craft our very own Snow Bunny. He may not last long, but we will enjoy him while he is here, as we spent what we hope was our last day playing in snow for this part of the year!

This picture was taken in my front yard this morning. I thought it was very funny to see easter eggs hanging on my tree in the snow.
Almost Easter?

Springtime Mitrophora semilibera mushrooms, growing next to wild chives in fallen oak leaves. Taken on our farm in Sparta, TN (where it's likely more springlike than the Chicago area).

This was taken Saturday night before the snow --- and it's a SURE sign that it's spring, because that's when Buckingham Fountain is turned on.
Took these pictures from my living room of a relatively small storm cloud moving through as the sun went down. The sun shot from under the clouds --- spring showers? lit up the skyline complete with rainbow. The colors shown in the image are right on. Very orange. Have a nice evening. Rick Richard L.
