April in Paris lives up to its romantic reputation.  Tulip festivals in the Netherlands offer dramatic displays of color. Cherry blossoms in Door County are a welcome relief from cold, gray winters.  However, my favorite place to be in spring in Chicago. The view from my office is filled with the white blossoms of pear trees. The parkways are alive with tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, and forsythia. Kids love to play in the neighborhood parks. Daily walks from our house make you glad to be alive. Here are some of my favorite spring photos featuring flowers in Paris, Amsterdam, Door County, and Chicago:
