A flowerful May?

Last week, we had rain. A lot of rain.

This weekend, we had snow. A fair amount of snow.

The week ahead?  More rain.

If the saying is true, May should be filled with flowers.

Has Spring arrived where you’re at? Could you send it on to Michigan?

  1. If I see it….I’ll send it your way. It’s been cold here too, but we were disparate for moisture.

  2. We have the same forecast but are 10 degrees warmer. Still not warm enough for me.

  3. We’ve had some beautiful weather in SE Alaska…days are getting longer, that’s nice! Still chilly, in the 50s, but the sunshine makes all the difference! ~ Sheila

  4. No seasons here, per se… we do summer most of the year! Grandkids spent Sunday swimming in Momma’s pool, while Momma took a 11 km bike ride along the ocean road here in sunny south Florida… OK, I’ll stop… you’re more than welcome to come down here and thaw out!

    • You’re a stinker!! But I would be enjoying the sunshine, too, if I were there. Not a fan of hot days though … bests! MJ

  5. Ah’choo! I’m not sure.. ah’choo! I’m not sure spring is here, but – ah’choo! the pollen is certainly present.

  6. That puppy is too cute!! As for spring, 2 days ago we had snow in the morning and early afternoon, then rain and the sun peeked out by supper time. We’ve had more than 6 days of rain out of 7 so far this month. Sure is making it hard to mow! Our yard stays green all year long here in the Pacific Northwest. And somehow, the grass has begun to sprout up. But with big puddles in the yard, and being muddy and swampy in other places, all I can do is sit back and watch things grow.

  7. Our seasons in Southern California are all screwed up. Most of our rain comes in winter, so that’s when everything is green. Summer is usually overcast and dreary. The Autumn is warm, dry, and glorious.

    Our wet-ish transition from winter-into-spring is hanging on a little longer than usual (much like the rest of the nation’s winter), but our wildflowers have already bloomed and are nearly “over”.

    • I enjoyed the explanation of your seasons there, Steve, because I wouldn’t have known that – but I guess it make sense that when we get our snow (winter) that’s when you get your rain! I think the whole country has had just about enough of winter; I know my friends in the Dakotas sure have! Bests, MJ

  8. We had temps in the 80’s a few days ago. Today is overcast, and in the 60’s. Spring will be here soon, MJ! Just hang on….!

    • I’m heading to DC in early May and fear I may melt — we’ve had such a cool/long winter that if I go right into 80 F on Capitol Hill I may meet Congressional reps in a puddle! Hanging on in MI, MJ

  9. With the rain and snow we’ve had, May should have bushels of flowers.

  10. No sign of spring here. Even the meteorologists on the local news shows are being cautious. They say, “Maybe next week, things will take a turn for the better.” No promises of sunshine and warmth yet.
