April Open Discussion

April Showers 
April showers bring May flowers, 
That is what they say. 
But if all the showers turned to flowers, 
We'd have quite a colourful day! There'd be bluebells and cockleshells, 
Tulips red and green, 
Daffodils and Chinese squill, 
The brightest you've ever seen. You'd see tiger lilies and water lilies, 
Carnations pink and blue, 
Forget-me-not and small sundrop 
Glistening with the dew. We'd have fireweed and milkweed 
And many more different flowers. 
Mexican star and shooting star, 
Falling in the showers. And if all the showers turned to flowers 
On that rainy April day, 
Would all the flowers turn to showers 
In the sunny month of May?

March Open Discussion

"The March wind roars
Like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by. 
When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then spring is here.

February Open Discussion

Thirty days hath September,
April, June and November.
All the rest have thirty-one,
Excepting February alone,
And that has twenty-eight days clear
And twenty-nine in each leap year.

January Open Discussion

Welcome another new year. Personally, I am not sad to see the old one fade away. Much to look forward to in the coming year. For this blog we have a birthday...The SWE will be 6 years old on January 19. Hard to believe it has been 6 years!
