April is my favourite month, second to none. I’m biased because it’s my birthday month, but I think it’s more about the return of spring, new growth, and a promise of a new year.
For me it is the new year and there are so many reasons to love this month. April rain is a promise of the lush summer to come. The wildlife returns. The spring melt is a reminder that winter does indeed pass, eventually. When April is here, there is hope.
I hope that you enjoy our April photographs as much as I have enjoyed posting them. As always, we are grateful to our local photographers for allowing us to post and share their work.
