April showers bring May flowers,
That is what they say.
But if all the showers turned to flowers,
We’d have quite a colorful day!
There’d be bluebells and cockleshells,
Tulips red and green,
Daffodils and Chinese squill,
The brightest you’ve ever seen.
You’d see tiger lilies and water lilies,
Carnations pink and blue,
Forget-me-not and small sundrop
Glistening with the dew.
We’d have fireweed and milkweed
And many more different flowers.
Mexican star and shooting star,
Falling in the showers.
And if all the showers turned to flowers
On that rainy April day,
Would all the flowers turn to showers
In the sunny month of May?

It is raining today. Rain. Not snow. Oh, it is certainly trying to snow outside, but Mother Nature is doing her best to keep the temperature just above freezing so all those would-be snowflakes are melting directly into rain. Winter is transforming into spring – how fortunate we all are to watch the seasons change right before our eyes.
