April Showers ...


After a winter that lasted much longer than anyone wanted, 
April eased into spring living up to its couplet,
"April showers bring May flowers."
The flowers have started to show, but I'm hoping their
best show will start later this week, with May.
This grouping of umbrellas hangs in the hallway
of the Herron School of Art and Design.
They appear to be motorized, although I don't
think I've ever seen them move.
The weather was dreary all day yesterday,
began raining in the afternoon,
continuing throughout Sunday. The rivers are
swollen and overflowing, an astonishing difference
from last year which saw a drought that had
begun with winter and lasted into fall.
The Herron umbrellas seemed an appropriate
expression for the outdoor mood.

If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?

I LOVE umbrellas! Perfect shot, and I, took would love to see them move. I shall return since I think you take great photos. Also love the Gretzky quote.
