You can always tell it's April 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 bade us good, when that mini, manic maelstrom turns the lawn to liquid mud. "
      ~Thomas Vaughn  Jones~

" I have seen the lady April bringing the daffodils, bringing the springing grass and the soft warm April rain."
         ~John Masefield~

" The first of April, some do say, is set apart for all Fools' Day.  But why the people call it so, nor I, nor they themselves do know.  But on this day are people sent on purpose for pure merriment."

Oh, Madeline, how your blog is beautiful every month! The texts are always well chosen, and I learned a new, lovely proverb ("April showers...").
Wishing a blessed and joyful Easter to you and your family!
