I arrived on Thursday and returned home yesterday. While there the local news said this month was the tenth most rainy in history. The rain continued through most of the weekend with only one day of sun. Easter was rainy and with a yard full of mud, we had to cancel the Easter egg hunt.
Cleveland Botanical Garden. There was a lovely tropical garden filled with interesting plants, animals and butterflies. Lots and lots of butterflies.
This was the weekend for the daffodil flower show.
It was interesting to see many, many tables of daffodils that had been entered in the flower show. I had no idea there were so many different kinds of daffodils! Each was displayed in its own vase.
The outdoor gardens were just starting to awaken from the long winter. We meandered through the gardens enjoying the day.
There are several lovely gates throughout the garden. I love gates and these were well crafted works of art.
In spite of the wet weather I had a lovely visit and can't wait to visit again. I don't blame Cleveland for the bad weather. Really, we just had to laugh about it. After all, as a local Cleveland broadcaster asked, "If April showers bring May flowers, what do Mayflowers bring?" Answer-Pilgrims!
