April Showers Bring Yet Another Blog Challenge?

Remember my last post when I mentioned liking blog challenges? Well, I've gotten myself into one again--a month-long one. I saw that A Helicopter Mom is doing it and I got curious, so I pressed the button with the apple. They got me! I read the challenge details and signed up without knowing anything really about the hosts. It sounds easy enough, except I will be doing near daily posts again. So much for chillaxin' for a while. That's what I get for being tempted by a piece of fruit.



Without further ado . . . (since it starts today and it's almost tomorrow which will be a new today)

A is for April Showers

It poured today. Poured! Seattleites are accustomed to rain. It used to be the thing for Seattlites not to use umbrellas. Well, I use them now and apparently everyone else does, too, because I saw them in scores.

My one consolation? Seeing my garden bloom. I delight in seeing pretty daffodils standing proudly amongst soggy griege plants (that need some serious deadheading). A co-worker who moved here from Utah last May asked us if the saying "April Showers Bring May Flowers" applies doubly here. He received a chorus of "Yes!" along with some "April and May Showers Bring June and July flowers."

So there's my "A". Come back tomorrow for "B"! I might even update this post with pics of my daffodils.

Tada!

  5. Welcome to the challenge. Boy there are certainly a lot of blogs that joined. It's going to take me forever to look at everyone's blogs (over 1000 now!)

    I just got done taking pictures of the daffodils in bloom here. I love spring!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  6. We are having rain every other day. So it's either miserably wet or gloriously sunny. Bipolar weather!
