April is also the month we celebrate Earth Day
April also happens to be the month the days are lengthening enough for us to moon about the countryside, and life is full of promise
Nature sat up and decided to revel in glorious life, and the hills are bursting with greenery and wildflowers
The buds are waiting to burst into bloom
Trees have been working extra hard to sprout new leaves. My alarm gleefully extols rapturous spring, and despite the strong motivation to get in a few snoozes more, the allure of the outside world is hard to resist.
Imagine my complete delight when I stepped out on a walk today and saw the goslings had hatched just in time for Earth Day?
Could this be why Easter festivities involve egg searches?
I walked into the house soaked one morning after walking in the rain, and announced to the chagrin of all in the household, “Only fools would step out on a walk on a day like this, but it was totally worth it!”
Maybe that is why April also hosts April Fools Day.
Nevertheless, please do enjoy and revel in the joys of April while you can.
