46th Annual Sheffield Garden Walk & Music Festival was a success!

Finally, Mother Nature provided the Sheffield Garden Walk & Music Festival with fabulous sunshine and temperatures.  Since June 1, this has been one of the wettest summers on record; however, the rains held off on our weekend.

Gardening for wildlife

It’s May, and that means it’s also Garden for Wildlife Month! This is a special time of the year to rally gardeners, wildlife lovers, and anyone interested in going the extra mile for local birds, butterflies, and other wildlife.

But why May? This month has been designated Garden for Wildlife Month because it’s such a crucial time of year for so many species.

Mark your calendar for the 46th annual Sheffield Garden Walk & Music Festival on July 19-20, when more than 80 Sheffield neighborhood gardens will open for your enjoyment. The wide array of urban gardens in our neighborhood has earned Sheffield the title,  “Garden District of Chicago.”  We encourage everyone to support the neighborhood and display their gardens this year, whether an entire plot or just the front, side, deck, or backyard.

45th Annual Sheffield Garden Walk & Music Festival was a success!

Once again, crowds flocked to Sheffield for the annual Garden Walk & Music Festival. (Garden Walk photos for SNN by Craig Skorburg.)

Finally, Mother Nature provided the Sheffield Garden Walk & Music Festival with warm but tolerable weather. Since July 1, it has been one of the driest summers on record despite a very rainy spring. However as luck may have it, it started to rain on Saturday night, July 20, around 9 pm, when J. C. Brooks and the Uptown Sound were in the middle of their set. Many hardy souls stayed, but many also left.
