Still Thinking Spring!

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 19 April 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Sorry for my lack of comments yesterday, but Chicagoland suffered a deluge of rain with over 5" of rain, which equates to 50" of snow. :-)

That being said, we're still waiting for Spring to arrive with warmer temperatures. The landscape is still barren here with no daffodils or tulips in bloom, so I post this shot from the Garfield Park Conservatory.

Such a beautiful yellow to celebrate spring, when our news is so bleak from your 'neighborhood'. Watching cars being devoured by a sinkhole is far from delilghtful.

What a contrast to the scene of cars falling into the sinkhole yesterday, that was on the news!
The deluge of rain must have caused lots of damage.
