10 Things I Love About April


This morning I was sitting and watching the sun come up over the mountains. I was thinking of all of the things I love about April. These are a few of the things I love about April.

    1. The sunrise and how every morning there are surprises as the sun peaks over the different mountains. In the winter it peaks over Bear Mountain. Now it is peaking over Greenhorn.

    2. The long evenings. Sitting outside is warm enough to sit and watch the sun set and then as the twilight deepens and the shadows deepen the sky turning to velvet and then the stars blinking one by one.

    3. The wonderful smell of spring and how there is just the hint of orange blossoms, rose petals and now jasmine and mock orange.

4.In April, there is just a bit of coolness to the air, even if it is 90 degrees. After most of the month has been 85-90 next week we will have snow in the mountains and the high will be 66. That makes me very happy. In April no matter what it is still spring.

5. In April, all of the beautiful flowers that are blooming. The green on the trees and the lovely chicks tha
I have and sit outside watching them every day.

6. Cadbury Mini Eggs.

7. Spring Vacation.

8. The mockingbirds singing in the morning and watching them jump high in the sky and do little back flips because they are just so happy. Like my chicks running and jumping in feathery little bits of joy .

9. Watching all of the new birds flying in for a visit and then flying on. I see so many stopping to take a bath in the swimming pool.

10. Just life, I am aware of how blessed I am and how happy I feel most of the time, but in April there just seems to be nice things all around.

I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings

  1. What a grand feeling to have gratitude for one's living space. Your flowers cheer me. I planted 2 different kinds of sun flowers in the green house and they are peeping up. Sunflowers grow so quickly. I plant a big supply for winter to feed the birds.

  2. Hi Kim! I'm home today (just for fun!) I love April, too. Even though it gets dicey in the weather department, it's still so beautiful outside! I wish we had more birds flying in for a birdseed treat.
    I can't believe you are already having such warm temperatures.
    Next week, you'll get a break!
    Sending heaps of love your way!

  3. i love the mockers and their dances. :) you have such beautiful blooms around you, too.

  4. Great flowers.

    April is the month that cures us of the winter blahs.

  5. oh, April...how I do love thee (through Kim's eyes)! xo

  6. Hello Kim and happy April blessings to you! It is a beautiful time of the year and I am really enjoying watching the buds opening and at night the moon is perfect to sit and watch as it rises.
    A lovely post!

  7. Beautiful blessings you have there. We're still doing the "snow thing" but that is WI for you. Little signs of spring here and there. The crocuses are up. Sun is shinning. Tulips are popping up. Soon it will be nice weather to do things outside...sometimes to chilly and in the 20-30's which is sweater weather in WI!!! Lol!!

  8. I keep forgetting to comment on that beautiful yellow rose on your banner.....it is gorgeous!!!! Would make a beautiful framed photo on the wall!!!

  12. All reasons to rejoice in April! I love the small purple violets(?). We do not have anything like that in our desert climate in So. Calif.

    I love Cadbury eggs, but only one. Just one.

  13. Yoo have a very gretful heart from morning till night and it starts all over again the next day and then the next.... That's Happiness...
