Spring time in northern Illinois always has its up and downs.
Last Monday was definitely a down!
I stood with my mouth open looking out the window as the ground became covered in white!
It was all gone by Tuesday afternoon.
Lets hope that was winters last hurrah!
By Sunday the temperatures had warmed nicely,
making Easter afternoon outside delightful.
The pipeliner spent most of the afternoon giving wagon rides.
We couldn't have had a nicer day!
Today it is back to chilly weather.
But in celebration of Earth Day,
I planted 20 blue norway spruces.
They are just little things.
I ordered them from my local soil and water conservation district.
They hold a tree sale every year.
Of course I wish I would have ordered more.
Hopefully in 10 or so years these will be full, wind blocking, beauties.
Happy Earth Day!
