these april showers are never-ending

share with friends

For those of us who live in the Pacific Northwest, the phrase ‘April Showers Bring May Flowers’ holds quite a bit of truth. Because, truth be told, it rains a lot in April.

As inĀ  every . single . day.

But without all of this sideways rain, we wouldn’t enjoy all that it does for us : the greenest green grass, flowering trees and shrubs, tulips and daffodils that pop up everywhere and enough water to keep our lakes and rivers full and clean.

April rain holds a promise of beauty to come : at least that is what I am telling myself to make it through these soggy days!

In honor of the crazy spring weather, I’ve created a new art print

    Beautiful! I was just looking out and admiring how the gray skies enhance the yellow daffodils and the bright green grass. It’s funny, I was just thinking of painting my living room gray with bright yellow and green accents.

    Yes…. well, at this point, I’d take a few less flowers! We’re at day like 47 of straight rain here! AGGGHH! : ) Rachelle, in rainy, grey Gearhart, Oregon

    Perfect timing…I live in Lynnwood and we even had snow in the mix yesterday!! I so need a daily reminder of the hope of our fabulous late springs and summers.

    I LOVE the color combination in your print! Such a cheerful piece. Well done!!!

  17. Jo @ To a Pretty Life April 7, 2011 at 5:44 pm #

    That’s a lovely print! Unfortunately here in my part of Canada, it’s more like May showers bring June flowers ;-) Although I do have a violet already!

    This was always my favorite bulletin board in primary school. I was just telling my husband, that this was my favorite little saying for Spring and Easter time.. So sweet! :)

    Cute print! March was SO wet too! Tough to have tennis matches in the Northwest-so many rained out…

  20. Jessica April 8, 2011 at 9:09 am #

    I love this print… especially since my birthday is in April! It reminds me that the sorrows in life have meaning and there is always hope for tomorrow!

    apparently last night the news anchor said we haven’t had a completely sunny day in 6 weeks. Those flowers and that grass better be ROCKIN’ this year!

    Love this — thanks for the reminder of what is yet to come…however us vanouverites love the rain as we get to accessorize with rain boots & umbrella’s – Love it!

  27. Jessica April 10, 2011 at 9:59 pm #

    Love the new print! Yes, we’ve been getting lots of rain as well – I took the opportunity to get some new, cute rainboots :)

    I was wondering where you get your shapes and backgrounds for your prints – trying to plan a baby shower on budget and would love to try to make the invites, but don’t know where to find cute shapes / backgrounds… HELP!

  28. Brianne April 11, 2011 at 7:12 pm #

    I live SO close to you…Enumclaw! Getting lots of use out of the rainboots and umbrella. Love the print – adorable!!
