Photo Blog | Don’t worry Chicago…Spring has sprung

Nick Ulivieri | May 3, 2011

I think it is safe to say spring has officially “sprung” in the Chicagoland area.  Despite the cooler-then-normal temperatures and wicked weather we had last week, the sun is finally shining and it appears the mercury will start rising…albeit slowly.   I took these pictures this weekend where I spent my time at my parent’s house.  Interesting story about the Magnolia flowers…The bush itself is about 25 feet tall.  I couldn’t reach the flowers from the ground, so I hopped on my roof.  I was actually helping my dad scrape/prep some of the siding for new paint when I realized I had a good photo op.  Luckily, I didn’t fall off.
