April Showers Bring May Flowers

Lots of rain = lots of flowers. Unfortunately none of these are mine ;o) LOL!


The magnolias are my favourite and I thought I would miss them because of this weather :o( Luckily I got a small break in between the downpours and was able to snap a few pictures. Not enough for my liking though. We're 'supposed' to have sun tomorrow and Tuesday but we'll see. DH has already mowed the lawn once and I think its grown four inches in the past couple of days. LOL!

I love the bottom photo and the rain drops on the leaves.

We had a bit of sun yesterday and today it's back to gloomy. Sigh...someday.

Pretty flowers, I am trying to get some colour in my garden this year.

Nancy said...

Love the flowers! Everytime I plant tulips in my garden something eats them :(

I think next year I will plant some in pots so I have some to enjoy!

Hi Cathey,

I've been tromping through some
neighbourhood gardens taking
pictures of some of the pretty
tulips that have bloomed in the
past few days as well.

Yesterday was a gorgeous day out
so I took advantage of it and
walked ... a lot! In total I
walked for over 2 hours and it
was such a joy to be able to
bask in the sunshine and not be
bundled in multiple layers of
winter gear.

I love the red tulip with the
variegated leaves best of your
pictures. You can even see
the dew on the flower petals.

Hurray for Spring!!!!

Here we're not really feeling spring.. too much rain, too many thunderstorms =/ better days will come ;)
