April Showers = May Flowers

Happy May Basket Day! At least when I was a kid growing up in the Mid-West we would deliver May Baskets full of candy and popcorn to our friends and neighbors. It was such a fun day. Up north the month of May typically ushers in multitudes of flowers that begin to bloom from the abundance of rain {or melting snow} during the month of April. This has been the case in Texas at our home; the flowers are blooming! We have roses and a variety of flowers blooming beautifully every day.

Since today the Style Me Bloggers are linking up and featuring our takes on April Showers brings May Flowers, I thought I would share some of our roses that are blooming so beautifully right now. We have had quite a bit of rain and the lay of the land looks very lush {for Texas} right now. Unfortunately, because Texas is not the rain capital of the world or the US, I really have to rain gear but an umbrella, so I’m going to focus on flowers today.



One Rose


Since Create28 Lovely Spring Looks ended this week and yesterday I featured my top three favorite looks, I decided to post another look that didn’t make my top three but did make my top five. This floral top is new and I love to pattern mix it with my favorite windowpane pixie pants.

Happy 1st day of May. I hope May will usher in lovely flowers and floral prints into your daily life. Please stop by and visit my blogger friends and see their take on today’s prompt.
Hope you have a lovely weekend, friends!
