February: Valentine's Day

Miss Foley, observing that the McGarden is looking rather drab and wintery, found a creative way to add a dash of color:
Four weeks. Sigh.

I poked around in the wayback garden and found a crocus or two that had emerged from the mulch during the warm snap, only to be flash-frozen when winter reasserted itself. I can feel Spring coming, though. Yep, here it comes.

Any day now.

Ahhh... I hope your dog is okay...
Spring will be here very soon!
I hope!

Your poor Greyhound! They really don't appreciate a Chicago winter. I am a sighthound fan. I had Borzoi & I'd like to adopt a Greyhound someday after my kids have moved out. (My house is too small for all of us & a dog that big now.)
I am one of the organizers of Garden Bloggers' Spring Fling, which is being held in Chicago this year on May 29-31. I really hope you can join us. Check out the official site
Chicago Gardeners" for information.

Aw, poor baby! She doesn't look too happy about her cast. I hope she's mending well.

I second Mr. McGregor's Daughter's hope you can join us for Spring Fling!
