Hello April!

April the month of reawakening. It’s the month that instills a spirit of youth in everything on earth. A time when nature awakens from a long slumber. We witness rebirth, regrowth and renewal as buds begin to sprout on bare branches, flower beds emerge from the soil in gardens, parks and sidewalks, the earth is moist and the sun shines bright and strong.

British writer, Monty Don, says “Daffodils, blossoms and tulips jostle to the front of the stage in April. I love these early perennials: they may be more modest but they nearly all have that one special quality that a plant needs to transform your affections from admiration to affection – charm.”

The allure of April is in witnessing the transformation of a bud into a blossoming flower. The joy is in soaking up the myriad colors of nature and the countless species of flora that come alive. In sharing this sentiment our guest writer Vijayalakshmi Abhishek presents ‘Pink Mandevillas’.
