APRILThe name of this month is derived
from the Greek word for "opening". In many European countries the first of April is observed as a custom for which no satisfactory origin has been assigned. Ignorant and unsuspecting persons are sent on bootless errands, which is supposed to be great great fun. These people are called "April Fools".
Therefore April 1 is called "April Fools'Day."
All day I have been looking out of my windows and enjoyed the blooming Japanese cherry-tree and Crab-apple.
In the garden there are daffodils, tulips, crocuses. The yellow forsythia was so beautiful and full of bloom, but now it's losing its flowers.
