April Showers Bring May Flowers

I sing of brooks, of blossoms, birds, and bowers:
Of April, May, of June, and July flowers.
I sing of Maypoles, Hock-carts, wassails, wakes,
Of bridegrooms, brides and of their bridal cakes.

It has been so dry here, and I'm thankful for the rain we are getting. However, I'm wishing for a little bit of warmth that I've found in looking at your beautiful pictures! Enjoy your Sunday!

PS: I love your bunnies in your last post!!

Your flowers are looking great. I know that you have been warming up and cooling down. It seems to not bother them.

Its amazing to me to see how far ahead of us you are. Here in Michigan Spring is slow coming. The Hyacinth and tulips are still out. The Hosta is just poking through feeling to see if the air is warm enough yet. The other stuff is not even making an attempt.
