This morning we looked out the window and saw snow flurries. Quite a departure from last week, huh? I know, I know, April weather is unpredictable across the board, and in Chicago it can mean tornadoes, hail, snow, or 75 degree weather. Ah well. That’s why we don’t plant the plants outside ’till May, right?
Last week, we had a good time discovering some of the perennials at the new place. Here are some of the unexpected treasures we found around the yard:
The greatest treasure of all, though, is the fat woodchuck who has been burrowing in the basement since it came out of hibernation last week. Apparently, they climb trees in order to “survey their surroundings”. This one looks pretty satisfied, I must say. Hope it likes to travel, because this week it’ll be relocating to the woods behind the pond.
