*Enchanted April

It is an enchanting month.

Plum and almond bushes are beginning to show their delicate pink color. The forsythia is all over the place with it's shocking bright yellow against the old winter greys. Here and there tulips are beginning to open as well as the daffodils.

My neighbor, Ed, has a corner of his garden which is ablaze with bright yellow daffodils. I 'm just sure that he sneaks outside in the middle of the night and plants fully opened flowers. One day they're not there - next day they are.

The chickadees fill the air with their frantic little calls as they madly chase each other all over the place. May will come - everything will be green and beautiful, it's such a beautiful month. March is behind us with all its' bluster. Now, however, we're in April and is is magical.

*I wish I could take credit for the title but it's the name of a book The Enchanted April -By The Author of Elizabeth and Her German Garden.

Hi Diane,
I love April...and May even better. But Spring Is finally here and things are looking beautiful and green again after the two days of rain we have had here. My forsythia is starting to bloom and I even have daffs blooming! The only color in the garden now is yellow, but I love it.
Speaking of loving it...the picture in your previous post is so lovely. I just love seeing pictuers of you!
I am going on a little trip and will not be at a computer. so I will catch up with you when I get back. I get to go see my daughter who just moved out of state. My other two daughters are going with me and Dale even took time off work to care for Landon so I could go. It will be fun.
Have a wonderful weekend friend!

Good morning, Diane. That picture is so sweet!
I love the movie Enchanted April - I bought the DVD when I finally found it last year on a shopping trip down to Washington. If you can get it, do - you'll love it!
