April Shower Promises

I am very much hoping
that these April showers
are going to bring me May flowers...



I do not mind the rain in April.
Especially if the results for May are
green grass
apple blossoms
johnny jump-ups
the continuing return of summer birds...



Wishing you a wonderful last week of April!

Beautiful shot! A young robin? We've had a lot of showers too, but everyone is excited for next weeks forecast… no rain and up to 80 degrees! I know I'm a PNW girl when I think that 80 is too hot! Lol Hope you have a lovely May!

April is such a lovely month, although it's been rather cool hasn't it? LOL.

It has been very rainy April here. It's raining right now actually.
But I do have high hope for lots of green grass and summer birds and so on in May :-) I hope your May will be very green and shiny and cheerful! The bird in the picture is so cute. Have a wonderful new week!!

Willow said...

As April ends here at the farm we are seeing many signs that April showers DO bring MAy flowers :))

Brian said...

Robin doesn't look overly happy. Maybe Batman can cheer him up.

We were working out in the yard the other day, and Joe pointed out a plant and said "That thing is dead." I went over and dug beneath the mulch and the leaves and found a bunch of green sprouts coming up. It's there...the flowers are there....they are just taking their time coming up.

Here's to May blooms!!

Hi There, I don't mind rain in April either ---but we are predicted to get some really severe storms here this week. That I do not LIKE or WANT.... Rain is fine --but no tornadoes or hail or high winds... Yuk...
Hugs,
Betsy

What an amazing photo. We have been having lots of April showers, which unfortunately for us beat up the tree blossoms and tulip that are already here. Hope your rains bring you wonderful blooming things. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth & Calista Jo

Deb said...

I feel the same way, Catherine. We are a month behind as far as Spring in our parts. Time for some green grass and flowers.

Grace said...

That is a fabulous photo!

Susan said...

Back at ya. We've had some rain too. All I've thought of is that April showers bring May flowers.

Lisa said...

What a beauty.

The snow we did have this morning is gone. Green grass is now every place. I hope it just rains again now for a bit.

That little bird really needs some green to go with his smart orange vest. XX

Dearest Catherine,
Oh sure we don't mind the rains either. When witnessing the dramatic transformation in nature it is WORTH it!
Hugs,

Awww.. That is how the saying goes, so it must be true. April showers bring may flowers. Great shot my friend.

Such a sweet photo! After nearly 30 years on the coast, I have to say, I'm pretty much done with rain. I hope pretty flowers sprout up from the mud.

Such a sweet post! Wishing you a very happy end of April. I am very - well, maybe not that eager - for May to come because that's my birthday month. Cheers!!

Exactly, I agree with you.
Greetings.

Lisa Gordon said...

I would be very happy with some showers, but some warm ones please. It just seems to want to stay unseasonably cold here. :-(

Love this little robin, Catherine!

Pam said...

I'm all for the rain, I'm dreading the storms that are supposed to accompany it!

Michael Manning said...

Catherine: This has been a brutal year for most of the U.S. but Arizona. We pay a price with triple-digit temps in Summer, but seem immune to Winter and Tornado's.

S. Etole said...

The little robin looks all puffed up like it is still cold. Haven't seen many here yet.

Penny said...

Love to see the robins return. We saw so many in Ontario and I kept getting excited about them...my Ontario family thought I was a little strange but then we arrived home to lots of robins, no snow but the ice is still in the lake and will probably be there for quite some time.
