I always have a wreath for my door on the storage building for every holiday and season.


For my inside decorations I have ceramic eggs and bunnies.

WELCOME THE MONTH OF APRIL



"To what purpose, April, do you return again?  Beauty is not enough.   You can no longer quiet me with the redness of little leaves opening stickily.  I know what I know.  The sun is hot on my neck.  As I observe the spikes of the crocus.  The smell of the earth is good.  It is apparent that there is no death, but what does that signify?" 
                              ~Edna St. Vincent Millay

"April, April laughter girlish laughter; then the moment after, weep thy girlish tears.
                ~ Sir William Watson~

You can always tell it's Aril by the sound of falling rain that mystic, mournful music as it trickles down the drain.

We're told we should be thankful for the kiss of April showers as it washes all the grass clean and  prepares the soil for flowers.

There's another side to April which doesn't bode us good, when that mini, manic maelstrom turns the lawn to liquid mud.
          ~Thomas Vaughan Jones~

April rain is here again; hear it pitter, pitter, patter, on the leaves and on the trees, see it spitter, spitter, spatter.  Rain, oh rain, don't go away we need you for flow'rs in May; Drip, drip, drop and do not stop, send a little rain our way."
                         ~Nina B. Hartford~

"Winters done and April's in the skies, earth, look with laughter in your eyes!"
                   ~Charles G. D. Roberts~

Have a wonderful Month of April.
