April is the Coolest Month!

That's what all the birds are saying. Hear them? They're right out my window, loving April.
Everything's budding. Our little lilac bush, that refused to flower for two years, decided her time has come. Hooray for lilacs! Forsythia, tulips, daffodils, the dogwood tree...
And soon the day lilies. And lots of other beauties.
So why did Mr. Eliot say it's the cruelest month? Because love is in the air? Because April makes you feel like everything is possible, everything is new, and then later on we still have to face December? Maybe your heart gets broken and your dreams don't soar quite as high as you hoped?
You know what I say?
It's spring and anything can happen. Life is new. My lilac bush is blossoming.
How does spring make you feel?
Do you find it very cruel?

Maybe you should go outside and smell the flowers.
Happy spring, everyone!
