April Showers

I think she has a nice friendly face much younger than I have been making, must be spring.
Her umbrella is very old text in fact it is a German version of Oliver Twist.

Darn dandelions but they look good with the croquet ball.



I have said many times “April showers bring May flowers”. I’m not sure but it probably comes from this Al Jolson song. I Googled his name with the song and listened to it on u-tube, funny old song but still nice to hear.

Life is not a highway strewn with flowers,
Still it holds a goodly share of bliss,
When the sun gives way to April showers,
Here is the point you should never miss.

Though April showers may come your way,
They bring the flowers that bloom in May.
So if it's raining, have no regrets,
Because it isn't raining rain, you know, (It's raining violets,)
And where you see clouds upon the hills,
You soon will see crowds of daffodils,
So keep on looking for a blue bird, And list'ning for his song,
Whenever April showers come along.

And where you see clouds upon the hills,
You soon will see crowds of daffodils,
So keep on looking for a blue bird, And list'ning for his song,
Whenever April showers come along.

Another great piece- I love the touch of Spring colors, her innocence and movement.

April Showers is wonderful Tory! She looks right at home strolling in your meadow of flowers.
