We love it here in Michigan - such a difference from the UK. This morning started out beautifully with gorgeous sunshine and it was soon 83 degrees - just lovely. Well we have just had a torrential rainstorm - it smells lovely out there - so fresh and clean. How the earth is meant to smell!
With the rain and the warm temps everything will be sprouting. I love the spring and summer in the garden - my favourite flowers are my lillies, the dutch irises, daffoldils and my magnolia tree - which after the rainstorm is looking a little battered :O( The flowers are so delicate but they have such a lovely fragrance.
