The rain had been falling all day. Puddling on our paved driveway and drenching the flowers that had just began to bloom. The weight of the water was causing them to tip over and bow like humbled parishioners on a Sunday. April Showers have continued into May...
Shawn and I decided that we had done enough cleaning throughout the house. As the late afternoon waned and the rain still had not let up we decided to spurn our chores that were mostly done and hit the back roads. Nothing like a little mud and open land to feed our craving for countryside and scenery.
Even though the weather was gloomy everywhere was bright and blooming. The grass was the brightest and most perfect green I've ever seen. Crayola would be envious of such a color. This time of year is my second favorite next to fall; when the leaves bud and blossom. Pastel greens and hues of pink fill the forests. There is just something about the freshness of the colors that makes me swoon over the landscape even more than normal.
See what I mean?
Even the rainiest days can turn out to be the most beautiful and breath taking.
Don't spend them all indoors!
