Sweet April showers
Do spring May flowers.

Thomas Tusser

April 1 - Think Spring !

April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks go.

Christopher Morley

April is a most confusing month - rainy and wet one day and the next full of a warm promise of green growth to come.  Once the grass turns green, lawn mowing will begin and it’ll be q weekly thing until sometime in October when our growing season ends. 

The old adage that April showers brings May flowers still holds true here.  While some of our southern states are already experiencing lots of blooms, and we do get a few during April, May is the when the lilacs and roses bloom.  

The sun was warm but wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.

Robert Frost

We do get a lot of rain, but we are reminded that after the rain comes the sunshine.  This too shall pass.  But rain is a gift that is vital to life and growth.. 

It’s time to spring into action after a long winter spent inside our  homes.  

April is a promise that May is bound to keep.

Hal Borland

Gorgeous pictures! I remember as a little kid, we used to snitch our mothers' jars of honey … pour on the lilac bushes and eat the blooms.

I like that last quote about April being the promise that May keeps. April is usually the start of the hot weather here but so far the next week is predicted with mild temperatures in the low 80's. Loving it!

Fall is my favorite season and then I love spring. I do have to admit the flowers are gorgeous. I like April - it is short - and it is still usually cool here!

Saturday was summer weather and today I needed my winter coat and gloves. I know it can still get chilly, especially at night, but also know that in just one month it will be true spring every day.
