(Sunday Snapshot) - Are We There Yet?

April Rain-3
Spring is sooner recognized by plants than by men.
~ Chinese Proverb

April Rain

I feel like I'm one of my children in the car as we travel to a destination,
and instead of asking "Are we there yet?" I
keep asking to myself, "Is Spring here yet?"

April Rain-4

It seems to take one step forward and 3 steps back.
Many days we've had cold rain, a few days of snow, and not much sun.
Since we've had a month of April showers, we should have
a plethora of flowers in May.

We decided to embrace our (slow to arrive) Spring
and have fun in the puddles and rain.
Spring will come, it always does...

I just love the vivid color of the umbrella against the gray sky. So happy. I still need to purchase an umbrella. We never had one living in the desert & have enjoyed feeling the rain on our faces so much here that we just have not bought one yet. :) LOVE these Gail. Hope all is well- thinking of you all.
