Some of My Favorite Things for Spring

Today was an absolutely gorgeous day in Chicagoland. Not sure if it quite reached 60 degrees, but it was plenty warm for us, and there was lots of sunshine. In honor of the glorious day, I present some of my favorite things for spring.
Tulips making their way through the ground.
Lilac buds promising fragrant blooms.
And everyone helping out in the garden.
Of course, there's still some snow on the ground in our backyard. (There are some spots that I don't think get sun until April due to the houses and trees that surround us.) It's still March, so I'm sure there will be plenty of cold days and maybe even some snow before we get to summer, but it sure is nice to see the light at the end of the tunnel!
