April Arrives, Finally

Flowers in My Garden
After a long stretch of too cold temperatures and below normal forecasts we have finally stumbled into April where the hope of warmth and more moderate weather is still strong.

Even so, the temperature danced with freezing this morning, for hopefully the last time this Spring.

The Springtime flowers are beginning to bloom, despite the continual onslaught of frigid weather. I noticed buds on the forsythia yesterday as I was doing maintenance on the house and getting it ready for the coming year.

I know in my head that it is Spring--it is just that the temperatures do not seem to bear out the fact. 

But, the new month has arrived and hopefully it is time for the weather to change.

Important Dates in April:

4 - Passover Begins
5 - Easter
6 - MLB Opening Day for Orioles in Tampa
10 - Orioles Home Opening Day
15 - The Tax Man (or woman) Cometh
16 - Holocaust Remembrance Day
22 - Earth Day
24 - Arbor Day
25 - Anzac Day
