April Showers

April showers bring May flowers.

April weather; rain and sunshine both together.

In the UK many reservoirs are low, and in some regions a hose-pipe ban has been put in force today. The winter and early spring were extremely dry.

Since I arrived here on Tuesday, however, it has rained almost non-stop!

The rain has inspired this haiku:

Raindrops dance on leaves

Flowers hang their heavy heads

Oh come, sunshine, come!
