It appears the April showers have begun early.
The last day and a half has brought steady showers,
leaving puddles in low spots
and making all the spring flowers heavy with rain.
My daffodils are hanging their yellow heads over
like this one in an image by photographer Denise Goldberg.

And my dark pink camellias,
the ones that make me happy every time I look at them,
are also bending their heads down low.
But on a day like this, we miss
what the flowers probably know,
that they are bowing their heads in reverence to the the rain
rather than in sorrow.
