Well at least it isn't snow!  If it was, we would have several feet of the stuff - as it is, we have had flooding in our area that has even caused some school cancellations and start delays.  The grass is brilliantly green and it looks striking against the various blossoming trees and flowers. 

April never fails to live up to it's promise of showers - and I can't wait for the flowers of May!!

A favorite April poem

The Daffodils
by William Wordsworth

I wandered lonely as a cloud
   That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
   A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
   And twinkle on the Milky Way,
They stretched in never-ending line
   Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced, but they
   Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A Poet could not but be gay,
   In such a jocund company:
I gazed--and gazed--but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
   In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
   Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Yardwork

Today was a fine spring day - 67 degrees and some sun!  Delaney and Ella assisted me outside and we accomplished quite a bit.  We picked up many sticks and branches from all over the yard, raked up birdseed hulls from under the feeder, cleaned out some flower beds, trimmed back lavender and euphorbia,and several other chores.  Many hands make light work!

Glorious day

Easter Sunday was a glorious and beautiful day!  We attended church with Taylor, Melissa, Delaney and Ella - followed by a chocolate Easter egg hunt and a good meal of turkey breast and more in the later afternoon.

He is Risen!
