April Showers Bring May Flowers

Spring has sprung, and with it comes the rains of April and of course, the flowers of May.

Snowbells have began to appear in the garden and out in the yard. Crocuses have began to bloom and I can’t wait for them to open up. Both flowers are some of the first to make an appearance, along with snowdrops, tulips, irises and daffodils.

I actually quite enjoy rainy days, especially when I can get out to explore. I grew up in the country and have always relished the opportunity to wander around the farm in the rain.

While I currently live in the city, there are some places that remind me of home, like this trail I enjoyed recently. I just love the feeling of relaxation that walking in the rain gives me, and of course the sights and sounds.

What is your favourite time of year? Do you enjoy walking in the rain, too?
If so, what do you enjoy about it the most?

“Sweet April showers
Do spring May flowers.”
– Thomas Tusser, A Hundred Good Points of Husbandry, April Husbandry, 1557
