April Showers Bring.....

This past week has been a very rainy one.
We awoke several mornings to the sound of the raindrops pelting against the window panes and sills of our home.
It was a very welcome sound as it has been rather dry in these parts, and it has turned everything green overnight or so it seems.
This was the scene on Thursday and the photo journey
I took as we went into town to do our grocery shopping.

Raindrops on Windows:
Hyacinths waiting to bloom:
Faithful Forsythia:
Elegant Tulips:
Flooded Farm Fields:
Fast-Flowing Creeks:
Skies Filled with Cumulus Clouds:
Sun making an attempt to break through the clouds:
Green Grass Everywhere:

April Showers
April showers bring May flowers,
That is what they say.
But if all the showers turned to flowers,
We’d have quite a colourful day!
There’d be bluebells and cockleshells,
Tulips red and green,
Daffodils and Chinese squill,
The brightest you’ve ever seen.
You’d see tiger lilies and water lilies,
Carnations pink and blue,
Forget-me-not and small sundrop
Glistening with the dew.
We’d have fireweed and milkweed
And many more different flowers.
Mexican star and shooting star,
Falling in the showers.
And if all the showers turned to flowers
On that rainy April day,
Would all the flowers turn to showers
In the sunny month of May?
