April is all about . . .

. . . Anticipation

The April breeze brings a warmth that we had almost forgotten. Each year that first Spring sigh comes almost as a surprise. Experiencing it unlocks a yearning for sunshine and greenery, and each day we look at the garden a-new in eager anticipation of the things to come. The opening of buds, bright blooms in the borders, and the buzz of bees on the wing.

The anticipation of each new day begins with birdsong, as more voices join the gradually building dawn chorus. The days lengthen too. And when night falls we listen to the grumble and gribbit of the frogs and toads. The garden is coming to life at last.
