Chicago’s spring is a joyous time for gardeners. They have been waiting patiently to get outside and dig in the dirt. Some of the more enthusiastic have been preparing seedlings in the house and have stored away bulbs and other plants that can make it through the Chicago winter. Some people are almost obsessed with gardening, some are just very fond of it, some have it as a hobby, and some are just “reluctant” gardeners who like the way a nice garden looks but don’t necessarily know how to accomplish it or can’t make the time to do everything they would like to do. There is a very quiet serenity that can be achieved in the garden that is very important to our busy and hectic lives.
