Lurie Bulbs Are Beginning To Grow.

Took a few pictures today before cutting down the last of the grass .

The garden looks a little bare right now but believe me in just a few weeks it will be exploding with growth.

These pictures are of the Light plate where it is open and sunny.

The dark plate should begin next week if the weather does not retreat into winter again.

Scilla and crocus are blooming with an anemone or two here and there.

These very light scilla were first to bloom. The darker colors are slower.

The winter color of the Little blue stem [Schizachyrium scoparium] is so beautiful I hate to cut it down.

Hi Gloria,

Another Chicago blogger here. Nice photos of the Lurie Garden. I was planning to go down soon to see them for myself but I suppose that I should wait a little longer, or at least until we have some warmer weather.

Yes, Wait at least another week or two.
This freezing weather has slowed everything down. Hopefully with a week of sun and slightly warmer temperatures the garden will take off. April 22 there will be people in the garden to answer questions about the bulb planting so we need that sunshine...
