The end of April means Springtime for most people. Daffodils, Tulips, Crocus. Swollen tree buds, curled up fiddlehead ferns, Snowdrops. It means cleaning of the patio furniture, fertilizing the lawn, and preparing gardens for planting season. It does not usually mean about an inch of wet, heavy snow! I am astonished at how long this winter is lasting in the northeast! Ug!
