Today, Chicago is overcast, while the gardeners outside of my window are mowing and clearing the grass and greenery around the courtyard. While Spring flirts with Chicago, the temps will be in the 50's this week and all is good for now. This is more like a Chicago spring. Oh and those April showers too!
