Bracket Challenge: Spring Things Showdown!

The beginning of the year is a fresh start for many of us—a time to set goals, be proactive and prepare for the year to come. Many of us are caught in the aftermath of winter storm madness with never-ending snow and arctic temperatures. Translation? We’re already starting to look forward to winter’s end.


What keeps you going through these arduous Midwest winters? Do you fantasize about the grey of your garden being replaced by bursts of colors? Do you long for the sounds of chirping birds?

We have long considered the Chicago Flower & Garden Show to be one of the first signs of spring. We’ve put together a sort of “Winter Madness” bracket of all the other things we’re looking forward to come spring. Help us narrow them down by joining us each week this month to vote for your top choices. Together, we can beat the winter blahs—and maybe have a little fun doing it!
