pretty parasols

as a native vancouverite, i'm used to having rain in the springtime here.
i won't complain, it comes with some pretty good trade offs. what i'm not used to are these rollercoaster weather patterns. we are getting hail, snow, rain, sun, high winds, all within the hour. warm temps one minute, freezing cold the next. all i ask is a little predictability, so i can figure out what to wear. is that so much to ask?
this little cutie is making me feel happy, along with the other whimsical watercolours in amber alexander's shop. i was just dreaming of sunshine + parasols, and there he was, dancing and smiling, eager to please.
