Today it poured. Rain, snow, sleet, hail...all at once, leaving piles of white stuff on the lawn and wherever the wind blew it.
This is May, for goodness sakes...we are supposed to have sunshine and flowers, so I was taught as a child. But then, I grew up in SE Alberta in near desert conditions during the summer so it probably doesn't apply to Calgary.
I grew up with the phrase, April showers bring May flowers.
I suppose in Calgary it's May showers bring June/July flowers.
I'm so glad I was taught to make lemonade when life gives me lemons.
I am grateful for flowers whenever they arrive.
