70s, Finally

Marsh marigold
We finally got up to room temperature in Chicago today – it’s been the 4th longest time ever between 70 F readings. The marsh marigold – generally one of the earliest bloomers in the garden – had its first blossom.

First lilypad of '08
The first lilypad of the year also emerged. The fish are basking in the sun and fighting a losing battle against the (hopefully) delicious string algae. It’s definitely time for a cleanout!
