Children, april showersApril is a few days away, and I was thinking about the Spring showers that will follow.

Rain, rain go away

Children, april showersSpring is a time for daydreaming.

Looking out the window at spring showers, or going for a walk and splashing in puddles.

Oh how very pretty those paintings are. I love the little girl in the window. Can't see her face but it seems like she would be sad. Rain days are my favorite days.

I love how you touched them up with the softest coloring.

I love rainy spring days. The light is often enchanting and if there is thunder and lightning...all the better!

Scrumptious images as always and I couldn't help but snag the first...thank you! (I really hope that we've seen the end of so much rain. The basement has flooded three times already this spring and another flooding may be the end of me.)

Thanks for the link. Two Easter Egg Hunts today for work. Kate came along for company and an excuse for free candy. It was so funny, I'm shooting for The Landmark and someone took Kate's photo for the local paper. Too funny! Went to Ink About It and spent way too much as usual. So far it's been a lovely weekend.

ENJOYED all the PINK!
