HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!!
I’m celebrating with shamrocks growing in my window at home.
A little bit of Spring on another cold & dreary Friday in Chicago!

Another snowy morning. Lots of snow coming down during the morning commute.
Luckily, the evening commute looked a lot better with blue skies breaking through!

Don’t forget… we’re all losing an hour this weekend!

Well, the warm-spell is over. Even the puddles were a bit chilly this morning…
with a side of broken-off antenna in the freeze!

While we did not get the “snowmageddon” they were predicting… there was a crazy mix of snow, ice and fallen leaves frozen to my car this morning. I think Mother Nature might be a little confused?!

And we still have a LOT on the trees too?… like they somehow forgot to fall off?!!!

I guess we can’t complain… we made it to the fourth of December before we got any snow. It was pretty coming down. I’m just not sure I’m ready for the next few months of this white stuff. When does summer start again?

The last of the golden hostas in my backyard.
Great colors & textures to be covered with today’s predicted snowfall.

Japanese red maple against a background of golden fall hostas.
Love the deep colors, textures & natural patterns.

While I’m “stuck” inside firing the kiln, I’m trying not to think about how perfectly BEAUTIFUL it is outside! But somehow, I keep getting glimpses of the incredible Fall day. I hope to get done soon enough to get outside before it’s gone.
