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.
