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?!!!

It’s officially the first day of Fall…
and I was greeted this morning with one perfect white leaf sitting on top of my gerbera daisy leaves. An “albino” harbinger of things to come!

How did it get to be September already?
That’s crazy. Summer went by far too fast. I don’t like it.
So I’m just going to call today August 32nd instead.

It was another beautiful Summer day in Chicago with some incredible clouds billowing through. Blue skies & puffy white clouds. Gorgeous.

Looks like the Spring flowers weren’t too happy about the snow either. We’ve got some droopy daffodils this morning. At least the clear blue skies & bright sunshine make it all a bit more bearable… and beautiful.

Welcome to Spring in Chicago!!!
