It’s been raining and raining all day, but hey, you remember that saying – April showers bring May flowers? Well since tomorrow is May … I guess we’ll see if all that rain helps make the plants in my garden and the gardens around me blooms. I’m sure it will.
There’s actually been plenty of flowers around since early March. We had a warm winter and that gave all the plants a head start. My garden is at least a month ahead of itself in growth and I have flowers blooming and plants coming up that I normally don’t see until the end of May! I’ve even had kids stop and try to pick some flowers for teachers on their way to school.
I’m glad that I do have so many flowers blooming in my yard. There’s been some years when things have been very slow to get started. On those years I believe I actually bought flowers and some blooming plants to have in the house just because I was longing for some colour after a long drab winter.
Have you been getting lots of rain in your area? Is it helping the plants grow?
