Friday's Fancies Week #8: April Showers

April Showers

Have you ever heard the spring riddle ' April Showers Bring May Flowers?  What do the May Flowers bring?'  I had never heard this riddle until a few years ago while living with my Aunt and Uncle in Washington D.C.  They have two children (my cousins - at the time elementary school age) and my youngest cousin would always get the answer wrong.  It was quite entertaining I might add...

This Spring has been quite strange here in North Carolina.  I'm not sure if I should complain or be happy?  Typically this time of year it's in the mid-60's and upper-30's at night.  For the last two weeks we have seen a lot of rain, pollen and highs in the 80's and low's in the 60's.  It's almost as if we skipped right over Spring...  Sigh...

If you were wondering what the answer was to the riddle...

Answer: The Pilgrims
