May Showers. Green and Flowers.

By Tamarsb
We had such a wet week this past week. Just damp and dreary and rainy and misty and blech. This weekend the weather finally turned around, I thought the sun was a figment of my imagination, but it was the real deal. May showers. Green and Flowers. I quickly grabbed my camera and went out for a walk and some Vitamin D therapy. Of course, the sun went and hid again within seconds of my foot crossing the threshold. But it was a nice walk, anyway! 
May showers. Green and Flowers. Everything is such an amazing deep green color. There is actually something quite stunning, in my mind, about the gray sky and the deep dark greenery. Such interesting contrast.

People with lawns to weed might hate me for saying this, but, I thing the puffs are the most interesting and whimsical weed out there! What other weed do you make a wish on? May showers. Green and Flowers.Then on my way back home, the bobbins and thread in my neighborhood dry cleaner's caught my eye. It actually catches my eye each morning, but 5:15 am isn't the time to get artsy! I just love how it photographed through the window glass. May showers. Green and Flowers.Just a simple walk on a simple weekend. Sometimes, there is nothing better!
