When I spoke by phone to my dear friend, VB, I mentioned to him that we have had a lot of heavy rains this month which I found to disprove the adage,“April showers bring May flowers,” as our showers are taking nearly away chances of May flowers.
He responded by quoting a line from Sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare (who died on this day in 1564): “Rough Winds do shake the darling buds of May.”
Shakespeare’s observation was certainly tested the other day, for the rain and high winds truly shook the blossoms on the crabapple tree (in my garden) but they clung to the branches and in some instances barely hung on and dangled in such a way they could’ve dropped, as evidenced in the photo-ops directly below.
The rough winds not only shook “darling buds” and blossoms they shook the not-so darling tarp being used for construction/repairs on a nearby building.
My crabapple tree is one of many members of the flora community that is thriving in my place which is also the setting for my three volume book series, Words In Our Beak.
|MY BOOK SERIES|
My stories are told in the voice of Cam, a female cardinal, who visits it. Words In Our Beak is directed to children and adults who are curious about birds, and want to learn about them from a unique perspective.
