The saying is: “April showers bring May flowers. ” And while it is April, and it is raining, you don’t have to wait until May to see flowers — tulips and daffodils are in bloom right now and are only short drive away from Seattle.
This month also brings Earth Day (Apr 22), and a great selection of live music, spring festivals, and family fun. We’ve included a few ideas here. Check out www.hurryout.com for thousands more!
