Elusive Spring

It's no secret that while half the country had an early, though sporadic Spring, 
elsewhere it has been elusive.

Here in Chicago it burps for half a day, and then disappears in freezing rain.

Last year we planted with pansies now.

Just to smell dirt in March is a Godsend.

Our porch bloomed, not this year, yet.
Nothing is on my front door, or on the front porch except twigs and wind refuse, 
which hasn't stopped with the constant overflowing gutters.

Ivy topiary and bunny from last year. Mid 30's this year, too cold for this.

We even had a few tulips in the garden last year.

The greenhouse was greening. It is this year with heaters.

My weak attempt at Spring this year, so far.

I have planned food. Carrots are a must.

We're scrubbing the back porch, when it isn't 40 degrees.

Will I get to use these great Spring tablecloths?

Just waiting for elusive Spring for inspiration,

Even my Spring wreath has blown off the door, twice.

  1. We get your elusive Chicago "spring" a day or so after it leaves Chi-town and crosses the lake. I'm so very eager for it. (She said, looking out at the gray skies as the rain drips outdoors). Sending you many wishes for a Happy Easter -- this post with all its bunny cheer and pretty eggs cheers me tremendously this gloomy day!
