Finally, the weather seems to have settled in to what spring weather should be, cool sunny days and nights. I know that the entire Chicago winter and March especially was plain strange. Never have I witnessed in my fifteen years here a winter so mild. Do not even begin to ask me to explain the summer we had in March.
With all the warmth and mild weather, the temptation has been to dive into your garden and start landscaping. I must preach caution as there are still frost and freeze possibilities. So I would not recommend doing any major planting or transplanting just yet.
What to do, you ask? Now is the perfect time for spring clean ups and spring containers. Cool weather annuals like pansies, primrose, stock, osteospermum and forced bulbs would be perfect to bright up a yard, porch, or deck. So give me a shout and let’s finally embrace spring.
