You know that little ditty you learned when you were small - April showers bring May flowers. Well we've had to wait a long time to get our first April shower, but we're being blessed today with rain. It's amazing to see the grass turn a beautiful green. Little leaves on the trees and bushes in my yard are ready to burst open. It's chilly - my furnace is still running - but the future looks hopeful. I think I'll unpack my spring clothes.
