April Showers. . .

They say that April showers bring May flowers. . .well, we're going to deserve a lot of those flowers with all of the rain we've been having! It seems we have been under a lot of flood warnings these past few weeks.

We don't have to worry about it flooding right here at our home~but sometimes getting out of here to town can be a little dangerous for anyone that doesn't wait for the water to recede from the low water bridge at the end of the road.

Yesterday, I rode with my husband back in the mountains and the sky was dark and looked ready to pour for most of the day. It never really rained on us, though, which I was thankful for.

Above is a picture I snapped from out back at one of the remote stations we visited. I hope to get some really pretty pictures to share with all of you, once we get past all this crazy weather.

The dogwoods and red buds are starting to bloom in my yard and quite a few dandelions are springing up. They look so cheery in this gloomy weather!



  1. Glad to see some are happy about the dandilions....too many people view them as weeds and kill them. Nothing is better than a dandilion bouquet from one of my boys!

  3. Hi Rosemary, have you built a ark yet? Stay safe with more nasty storms due in tomorrow, I'll be thinking about you! Hugs!!

  4. We've had lots of rain here too. But yesterday and today along with the rain we've had cold weather. Supposed to snow some tonight and get down to freezing. I hope it don't hurt all the blooms, but I'm sure it will. Good to see you and hope to visit again real soon.

  5. Hello Rosemary. thank you for the virtual visit to your cabin. I would like to link to you on mine.

    Have a great day! Dana
