Spring is here. Maybe not what we were expecting, but what should we be expecting?

Spring 2013 has never on Earth been here before. It's a unique as you or I. What will we see this year?
Well, some old familiar things for sure and of course exciting and rare editions to our nursery. Some of these plants we have had in the past but have not offered in several years. Large caliper Camperdown Weeping Elms, Weirs cutleaf white birch with a serpentine stem, Larger Blue Alaskan Weeping Cedars, Bonsai plants, Golden Cypress and many more.
We are also offering the year Kitras Glass gazing globes. Some of these glass globes are designed to be hung in your trees. They are like none you have ever seen before made  with thick heavy colored glass, see through, well you'll just have to see them for your self, they're indescribable!
Of course we'll be carrying amendments for your garden, organic vegetables and even organic chicken manure!
It won't be long and Mothers day will be here and we'll have it all together for you.
Grab a coffee, stop in, wander around,  listen to some mellow music and get inspired and go home feeling good.

Snow is here and spring's not far away...

Well the snow has finally arrived and I feel Winter has arrived.

I now turn my attention to Spring and wonder what it will be like, and more importantly what will Summer bring. But let's not get ahead of ourselves and return to the cold snowy day that's at hand all it's beauty.

I'm also glad we received the heavy rains beforehand, we surely needed it. Checking the weather data for over 100 years in Chicago area I found there is little to be concerned about. Spring may be a bit earlier now then in years past and overall a few degrees warmer during the year but no changes in leaps or bounds have arrived unannounced. Some years are wetter than others, some years there's more snow, but overall I see no need for the hairs on the back of my neck to stand up in fear.

Nature is something you have to roll with because it can't be fought. All that said I hope for a year that we can enjoy, relish, surmount and grow in. Enjoy the beauty of today.
