It certainly seemed like March weather in April would push our April weather into May. Although conditions are still damper and colder than May typically starts out, the ice has darkened and some sprouts of green are appearing. For us it will be a bit yet before blossoms pop but we can enjoy them on our desktop in the meantime.
Our recent precipitation has been snow flurries and freezing rain but we hold to the promise that even these April showers will bring May flowers.

Leatherleaf appears as first forest flowers of spring in my backyard! These delicate little blossoms are very similar in shape to blueberry blossoms. They differ in their arrangement on the branch, however, strung like patio lights.
