How interesting that peoples’ dispositions and smiley or un-smiling faces are often weather-related! I’m beginning to realize that about myself too – which is a bit of an oddity because, more often than not, I feel upbeat and forward moving.
The Spring that wasn’t has offered grey wet days, for the most part. And yes, we can coax ourselves along by reminding everyone that “April showers bring May flowers”…but is there a catch-phrase for May?!!!
The Victoria Day weekend did offer a couple of fleeting glimpses of sun – wonderful and heartening for campers and cottagers. Punctuated with drizzle and overnight thunderstorms , the weather wasn’t a complete disappointment. Think of it – tenters in wet clothes around a smoking campfire with a damp and malodorous dog – actually quite fun in retrospect but possibly not at the time!
Flower pots and window boxes are saturated and discouraged, lawns and weeds are celebrating, and while many people are grumbling ever-so-softly about too much precipitation, at least we don’t have to shovel it – and thankfully we are all untouched by devastating tornadoes as have been experienced elsewhere on our continent.
Buy yourself some sunblock; then visit the candy store for an all-day lolly; and finally - hang a crystal or prism in either an east or west facing window so you can catch the rainbows! Feels like Summer!
