April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, but it is too cold for any flowers to be blooming here. The gusting wind feels like it is blowing off of a snow-topped mountain. Hmmm, I guess it is.
Even though signs of spring are all around (the trees are budding, the grass is starting to green, the tulips are up but are far from blooming, the robins are building their nests), it is just too darn cold to enjoy the season. Yet.
Today's paper featured a snow-covered tulip and a snowy and blustery day, some 120 miles to the east. Brrrr! It is just too cold to be spring. Yet.
Maybe the next few days will bring a warm front and some warmer days, but until then, the only May flowers that I am going to be seeing is the one on my pillow.
