It is coming along very nicely here in northern Illinois. Although most trees are still look pretty bare, our magnolia trees have started blooming. We have a few white blossoming trees in the front of our house and a magnolia tree that produces pink blossoms in the back around our deck. These blossoms are short-lived so I’ve been cutting branches to bring inside to enjoy them more.
Also, today while driving, I noticed clumps of yellow daffodils blooming along the sides of a two lane road. These clumps appeared quite frequently for a mile or two. They were a wonderful surprise! I couldn’t help but wonder who would have planted them there as they didn’t seem to be on private property. I wanted to stop and pick a bunch, but of course I didn’t. I picked up a bunch at Trader Joe’s instead.
How is spring shaping up by you?
