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.
