After the Flood

Have you heard the news? Eight inches of rain fell in Central Park during the recent storm event (Sunday and Monday). That's something like 20 cm for you metric folks. That's a lot of water to fall from the sky over two days. I secretly wish it had been a snowstorm instead of a rainstorm...we would have been buried for weeks.

The saying is that April showers brings May flowers. I guess we'll find out! Crocuses and daffodils are blooming all over the city, and some of the early budding and blooming trees are starting to do their thing as well. That's not all that's growing:

I wonder what a mango tree looks like?

These wildflowers are tired of living under a blanket.

Something else has finally started to grow as well.

Hey, how'd this one get in here?

I love the beginnings of your sock - can't wait to hear some details - nice colors. And the kitty - I swoon for felines:)

I used to live at a house that had a huge mango tree. It was a great tree.

I love the yarn you're using for your new sock. I eagerly await the details. :-)

Looks like many of us are planting and seeding these days! I am waiting for my veggies to start growing!

i tried growing a mango tree from the seed many years ago. i don't think it grew. good luck with yours. i heard it can be pretty.

i did start a veggie patch in the yard this year but we have been having all 4 season weather/day so the seeds don't know whether to hibernate or grow. you got rain; we have potential drought! gads!
