April showers

The first day of April and the rains are already here.My
plants have soaked in more moisture than they need. And
the recent hailstones turned those huge leaves of the arum
and the banana to palm-like fronds. But soon the leaves
will look as good as new, I hope.
The weather had turned warm but it's cooler now. So
when the rain stopped, I was out planting the flowers
of summer---cosmos and zinnia. Did a bit of weeding
too. Everything grows so fast when the rains come--
I don't want a jungle in my front-yard!
