"Though April’s derivation is not certain, a common theory is that the name is rooted in the Latin April which is derived from the Latin aperire meaning “to open” – perhaps a reference to the opening or blossoming of flowers and trees, a common occurrence throughout the month of April."
I decided to go on a hunt for every bloomin' thing in my yard: (I think a "play" button should show up on the large pic if you want to watch the slide show.)
And the pix below are from my neighborhood. Sorry, couldn't figure out how to rotate fromwithin the slideshow, and just too lazy to delete, go back and fix. and re-upload.
