April is such an amazing month here in Michigan. The snow usually melts in the beginning of the month. Then we have this variety of weather - cold, rain, sun, some warmth - but through it all Spring is arriving!
Here's a few things in our yard that make me happy.
It's such a happy day when I see the leaves on the trees start to bud!
These little berries are still hanging on the bush from last fall, and are looking pretty sad, but they add a touch of color in this brown season.
Although Bob hauled about 10 wheel barrows full of acorns from the yard, there are still plenty out there!
The dried grasses look pretty in the sunshine.
The red twigged dogwood is starting to bud too.
The daffodils are growing fast!
And the crocus are almost ready to open!
Doesn't it just make you smile?
I am a Christian wife, mom to 5 and Grandma to two adorable little girls. I have 2 daughters and a son who were born to me and 2 sons who joined our family by marrying our daughters. I have been married to a wonderful Christian man for over 30 years. I work as a nurse at a long term care center, where I am blessed to get to know many older people and their families.
