I’ll Take Two Springs, Please
May 7, 2007
This year, I get two spring seasons!
Over a month ago, my family went to the Carolinas for vacation. The temperature was in the 80’s, all those colorful spring trees were blooming, and the tulips were everywhere.
Chicago has finally caught up.
We spent some time this weekend at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. If you’re ever in the Chicago area, you NEED to visit. It’s garden after gorgeous garden full of colorful flowers. The walled English garden, the rose garden (which of course was nothing this time of year), the prairie where tall wildflowers and grasses grow over waist high come August. Right now all those colorful spring trees I saw down south are blooming here–the purples, deep reds, pinks, and whites. And tulips of every color.
Can it just be spring all year long?
