April already, the year is flying by! Lots happening outside in the garden, the hedgerows and fields, nature just getting quietly on with it, a lot of folks oblivious to the wonder of it all! The daffodils ahve been especially good this year, probably because of the decntly cold winter we had; wild primroses have been everywhere, blooming in profusion on the banks and verges, under the hedgerows, very pretty, and always look best in the wild, although I do have some in the garden. Ramsons well on their way, won;t be long until that pungent smell hits the nostrils LOL Looking forward to that,a realy seasonal delight :)

Oh, to be in England
Now that April's there,
And whoever wakes in England
Sees, some morning, unaware,
That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
In England - now!

Robert Browning

Looking forward to April showers, chocolate eggs, newborn animals, longer daylight hours, sunshine and flowers.

You are soooooo right about many folks being oblivious to the subtle day by day changes occuring all around us....rather sad.....
