April showers

Bloodroot are several inches high in a backyard garden, but they don’t bloom on cloudy days. And although no crocus bloom in our yard, nor in any of those that I pass while walking the dogs, my print of crocus is shown here so you can enjoy a flower that launches the season of spring here in Minnesota.
