This past Winter we were wondering where all our rain was. What a mild Winter we are having, we said. Well it turns out April was stockpiling all the rain.
It makes for a very gloomy indoors but outdoors everything is turning a lush, vibrant green.
We are lucky to have these huge picture windows in our living room that overlook a big lawn and the trees below. It does give the interior a bit of green glow. Maybe we shouldn't have picked green carpet and a green couch.
(I left the shoes in the shot because that is just how it is around here. I have shoes everywhere. As soon as I sit down I kick them off. Just keeping it real....)
This picture gives you a better idea of how green it is out there. After months of grey and brown the green is a welcome change. Not visible in any of these pictures are all the azaleas and camelias that are blooming. If it wasnt pouring rain I'd go out and take a picture for you. They add a lovely bright pink to the landscape.
I would also go out and take a look at the creek to make sure it isn't in danger of flooding.
I hope where ever you are you are enjoying a lovely Spring and that you are staying dry.
