There are so many wonderful sayings and quotes on the month of May and maybe the most
well-known one is: “April showers bring May flowers.” Often in this part of the world, those showers are actually ice storms or snow squalls. However, I for one must admit that that bad weather is soon forgotten once those first crocuses explode out of the ground. Those beautiful bright yellow, purple and white light bulb flowers are a symbol of cheerfulness as they restore the landscape
and our hearts with color after a long winter
Speaking of colour, I hope you are ready to let it dazzle your senses in these next few months. There are so many fantastic things to do including OUR art show. I couldn’t help myself,
I just had to mention it in the intro. So excited! Also, please check out a rescheduled event that takes place tomorrow – it’s at the top of the list.
