spring sprung

although the temperatures are down today- we have had an amazing March for Chicago weather...

record breaking temps for many days in a row have brought out the buds with a vengeance and there are flowers in full bloom in my neighbors yard...daffodils and tulips and hyacinth...

here is an example- the photos were taken only 48 hours apart - day one versus day three of tracking the buds...



and then there is the Japanese plum out front that put on its annual show of pink blossoms - and in the second shot you can see the green of the trees across the street strutting their spring green colors!



and finally - when I went to file these photos I came across a photo of my schizo hydrangeas - they come in all kinds of colors even on the same plant... here is an old photo of some of the variety...


so we are on our way to an early summer from the yard work standpoint... and the bamboo didn't die off at all this immediately past winter... don't know what that will mean as it has never happened before...
