Spring Things

April is aglow with spring things.  Why, it's very name is derived from the Latin 'aperire' meaning to open, and in truth April is a month of openings. 

It is a gardener's month, for the trees bud overhead and the bulbs at our feet.  The variety of color among the tree blossoms, pink and white, and the blossoming flowers, as well as the varying shades of green leaves emerging from the trees as if over night, is truly a feast to the eyes and senses, prompting worshipful praise to the one who made it.  "How many your works are, O Jehovah! All of them in wisdom you have made.  The earth is full of your productions." ( Psalms 104:24)

How many spring things have you taken note of that brings you delight?  Yes let's take time to "smell the flowers."  Spring comes around only once a year.

Here are some more spring things I'd like to share with you. Aren't they cute?

Hope this blog on "Spring Things" has brought a smile to your face and encouraged you to enjoy the simple pleasures in life.

Also, nothing could be better than to enjoy the spring while listening to Vivaldi's Spring!  Take a few minutes to enjoy this delightful musical masterpiece.  It will put a "spring" in your step.

Have a happy, healthy Spring, and remember, April showers bring May flowers!
