May Flower Power

May 1st, 2015

By Logan Timmins

You know the saying, “April showers bring May flowers,” and if you’re like me, you’re grateful for the recent rain we have been experiencing because of all of the beautiful blooms that we now get to enjoy! Everywhere I look, I am delighted to see such vibrant and colorful flowers that are bursting forth at the height of spring. Those aren’t the only blooming flowers I see, though. Spring beauty, fashion and fragrance all seem to be inspired by the lovely blossoms too! Here are some of my favorite flower-power finds this month.
