Smash Saturday – April Page Prompt

Thank you for everyone who joined in with the March Challenge, you can see the Prompt HERE and my Page HERE, so now on to April…

April is the month in the UK where we tend to have lots and lots of showers, but as the song says, we need these to bring those flowers we will be celebrating in May. And boy aren’t we having a lot of showers at the moment?

The Word April comes from the Latin “aperire” meaning to open, tracing back to when it was the beginning of the year, when the trees and flowers began to open. It is also associated with Venus and Aphrodite, the goddesses of Love and Beauty.

The Flowers of the Month are Daisy or Sweetpea, The Birthstone is Diamond and the colours are pink or purple.
