A view of my world in Central Illinois and places we go.

Cold Enough? How About A Spring Flashback!

It’s been cold here in central Illinois…like never getting above freezing during the day and down to single digits at night. Four to six inches of snow is expected tonight. Brrr….

To shake off some of this pre-Christmas winter blahs, I recall that I never posted some photos from last spring (I think some of these did appear on Facebook, but that’s a different audience). All of these images were created in the backyard of a woman here in town, reflecting several thousand bulbs of various kinds, but mostly tulips. The variety is astounding. I’ve taken photos here before but this was the first time I actually was able to leave the sidewalk and get deep into her yard. I’d love to do this at our home, but unlike her, I can’t afford a full-time gardener. So, I’ll take it a little slower (I did plant about 70 bulbs this past fall, can’t wait for spring).
