April is my favourite month — not only because of it being my birthday month but because it’s the true launch of spring in The Kawarthas. The ice moves out, we move the kayaks out of storage, and the herons return.

And even though we had chilly weather and snow, it’s still the best month. When you see the beautiful photos taken during April by local photographers, I think you will agree.

Do you want to get on our top photographers list? All you need is an Insta account and to tag us using our hashtag #kawarthanow when posting your photo.

We share photos from across our readership area, which is the five-county area surrounding Peterborough which includes Peterborough, Northumberland, City of Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton, and Hastings (we sneak in the occasional Algonquin Park picture as well, particularly if it’s by a Kawarthas photographer).

To see our daily shares of photos, follow us on Instagram @kawarthanow and check out our feed’s highlight reels for recaps of every month in 2022.
