Cool spring hues…

Winter white scenes have been replaced with spring cool vistas of blue sky and pale purple crocus. Cool hues are calming and peaceful. This spring is especially welcome as it signals the end of many treacherous days of extreme cold and snow in Chicago.

One worry I did not have this winter was whether this twenty eight year old bulb would reappear. The record breaking snows were a warm sheltering blanket from the equally record breaking number of below zero days; a natural protector for bulbs and perennials. The bud waited two full days for April showers to pause, and opened this morning to greet the sun and to warm my spirit.
