Itching to Garden

Spring can not come soon enough in my opinion. I say that at the tail end of February knowing full well that April snow showers are a possibility.


Still, there have been some tantalizing spring-like days with sunshine you can feel warmth from...not a lot, but some. 


There was one warm day when the snow was lingering enough to highlight the now-ratty "winter interest" seed heads from fall-blooming plants. I took advantage of the contrast to prune them back. It was a small taste of the joyous labor to come.


Chicago Botanic Gardens feels the gardeners' pain and offers up the Orchid Show from February into March. I went last week and appreciated the mid-winter break. I've tried my hand at raising orchids and unintentionally murdered every one. They make it through the summer, but I keep my house too cold in the winter for their comfort.


Here are some of the beauties on display, and there are more to see.
