“April is a promise that May is bound to keep”
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.
April is represented by the daisy, which symbolizes innocence and the sweet pea as well as the white lily; the gemstone is the diamond. The zodiac signs of Aries, March 21st to April 19th and Taurus, April 20th to May 20th
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.
April sees its share of holidays and traditions – April Fool’s Day, Passover, Easter, Earth Day.
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.
