We had a beautiful day on Tuesday, but it was raining again by Wednesday afternoon. At first they said the amount of rain we have had so far was 'normal' and we were just used to 7 years of drought. You can forget in 7
long short years what normal is, I guess. Now they have changed their tune and admit that our precipitation is actually about 130% (or more) this April. But, back to Tuesday's partly sunny day, the day the lilacs started to bloom. Aren't they beautiful!? (Today they may be pounded flat from the rain we had yesterday!)
Trees and flowers are/were at their bloomin' peak. It was gorgeous around here. Poor sad things may have drowned by now. Ooo, aaah...spring was everywhere as I walked around with my camera in hand. I could fill this post with so many flowers, like forget me not's, irises, tulips, pansies and much, much more. You, most likely, have the same lovely flowers happening in your yard or neighborhood.
The walk reminded me of the bright and beautiful yarn that arrived from Judy. I bought 3 skeins of Peony, but had second thoughts, so I ordered the rest of the skeins. I would like to make myself a very large wrap....someday (soon). Any ideas of a large beautiful wrap that takes 1200 yards? And you must check out Judy's new colors! Oh my, more gorgeous yarn (just look at that Daffodil!!)
The one constant thing about spring is that it is never the same day to day or even minute to minute. The thunderstorms were incredible yesterday afternoon, the amount of rain was a little scary to contemplate. On my drive home there was a short distance where I had to drive through 3" of hail! Flooding has started north of Salt Lake in the Brigham City area, 1.5 hours away. We may still need an ark. The most concern is for area's in the Southern part of the State (where snowpack is 200%) and up north (too much rain). If rain continues in our area it could cause some problems with our mountain streams. The Utah Grrls should all be out of danger as far as I know. Unsettled weather may be the norm this time of year...sorta like a work in progress. Spring is a WIP, summer is is the FO.
I'm off to buy a rubber raft...have a good weekend!
