NOT MY KIND OF APRIL SHOWERS.

It’s April 18-th.  I certainly think that we can put the snow away by now.  Apparently Mother Nature does not agree.  About four inches of snow yesterday and another inch or so overnight.  I don’t really know what kind of May flowers these showers are going to bring, but the sooner the snow is gone, the happier I’ll be!!
