For many people calling something a typical spring day conjures up images of sunshines, slight mild breezes, daffodils blooming, that sort of thing.

Not in Vermont. The sky was full of dark billowing clouds, cut by slices of blue sky and sunshine poking through.
Every once in a while the cold spray of a chilly April shower had early emerging garden plants wondering what they were doing, coming up so early.
In some places, the April showers mixed with snow, or sleet. Then the slanting evening sun would blast through the clouds, lighting up a landscape just on the cusp of finally turning green.
