We have had more than our share of rain in this ' Fair Month of May '.
Fields stood ankle-deep in water, farmers delayed their planting.
Half-way through the month, we had a late frost, not the best conditions for tender young plants to make their appearance, but despite it all, appear they did.
The days have warmed and watering cans are once again being lugged around the garden.
And as if by magic, Winter browns have turned into Summer rainbows.
The cycle continues.
~Rainer Maria Rilke
