April Showers

“Pansies in soft April rains

Fill their stalks with honeyed sap

Drawn from Earth’s prolific lap.”

Bayard Taylor 1825-1875 Buried in Kennett Square PA

April Showers

The weight of the raindrops
bent the Pansy’s face to the ground.
Petals like velvet.

  1. It’s raining here in Indiana, too. We’re supposed to break a high temperature record today which was set back in 1897 at 84 degrees. We’ll see! Hope you have a great day!

  2. Ruth – just wanted to let you know that although I don’t often post a comment, I do love your daily photos – a great way to start the day! You help me appreciate the unique character of Pittsburgh and all the visual wonders around us – Thank you!! Janice
