Happy Sunday, Lovers.
After hearing that a Noreaster was predicted, and watching the locals scramble, as is typical, for food at the last minute, I was almost ready for ten inches of wet, heavy snow again, despite it being mid-April. Where I live, in the sharp-looking part of New York State, it's pretty common for the weather to play games with us. This especially means getting our hopes up for a lush spring.

It's not so much that I mind it. In fact, I find "undesired" weather, like rain, snow, and overcast days, to be the most magical. Today, instead of snow, we are being shown that for the next three days, we will have the precipitation originally predicted, except as rain.
This put me in mind of what rain promises. Between the various flowers my mother kept while growing up, memories of Easter Egg hunts in the mud, and broad leaves to take cover beneath in the hot summer ... I can't help but be just a little happier today.
What does rain make you think about? What's your favourite sort of weather? What are you looking forward to with the change of seasons? What colours come to mind for you?
