May showers bring May flowers (in Maine)
As spring takes a little longer to materialize this far north, I thought the traditional “April showers bring May flowers” needed to be adapted to fit my current climate. That, and the month of April was relatively dry compared to (so far) this May.
The pleasant surprise of today was that the skies actually brightened this afternoon (proving yet again that weather forecasts for these parts really are useless). The sunshine was MOST welcome, and I took a quick walk up and down the block to capture these spring flowers enjoying the sun.
There are even “indoor” flowers blooming, as my landlord installed two panels of stained glass on either side of the french doors that serve as an entryway to our carriage house apartments. Thank you Richard and Karin!
