APRIL 2015

April is a promise that May is bound to keep”

April Birthday Gem and Flower

APRIL doesn’t that sound just totally wonderful!!

March may hold the official vernal equinox but when the page is turned to April it really must be spring here in the Northern Hemisphere. For many folks it was another long, cold, snowy winter and the promise of warming sun and spring flowers makes the winter months all worthwhile.

Daffodils, light rains, crocus, nesting birds, new farm babies, starting garden seeds, lighter sweaters and jackets, sun that actually warms and is not purely decorative in the sky – all these things are sure signs of spring and the month of April.

No one knows for certain how April got its name, but it may have come from the Latin word ‘aperire’ which means ‘to open’. April is, after all, the month when in the northern hemisphere buds begin to open and things start to grow again after the winter.

March is synonymous with the onset of spring (in the Northern Hemisphere). Accordingly the flower associated with this month is the Daffodil also known as Jonquil, Narcissus or Lent Lily.

March sees its fair share of celebrations from Daylight Savings Time (yes, a reason to celebrate), St. Patrick’s Day and of course the Vernal Equinox

FEBRUARY 2015

Boy Presents Bouquet

The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.”

Gertrude S. Wister

The violet is February’s flower, although there are some that say the primrose holds this place of honor. The richly colored Amethyst is the birthstone for the month of February and the astrological signs for February are: Aquarius, January 20 – February 18 and Pisces, February 19 – March 20

February sees a large rodent providing weather forecasts and hope of an early spring.

Gardeners’ hearts are set aflutter with the arrival of seed catalogues and plans for the summer bounty.

Somehow in February, here in North America, we feel we have turned the corner on old man winter – there is now more winter behind us than in front of us. And, if we squint we can see spring just around the corner.

February brings hope for things to come.

February is merely as long as is needed to pass the time until March.
