Happy April

My welcome for April is a bit late, but nonetheless worthy of celebration. I said I love March, but in reality, I think April is my favorite spring month. Although the calendar officially denotes March as the official start of spring, where I live, March is still winter - we received eight inches of snow on the first day of spring.

It's April - everything is in full bloom. The birds are singing, the grass is green, the pear trees are white.. March makes me smile, but April has me grinning ear-to-ear. 

Happy Birthday to those lucky enough to have diamonds for a birthstone. Happy April in Paris, which I hear is fabulous.  Happy April!



  1. Hello - ahh I love these monthly posts - Aquamarine in March was special and this one is just the same! Its my son's birthday this month - I am sure one day he will have an interest in diamonds when he chooses his beloved! What a lovely set of images though - especially the eyes in number 2 image! Really beautiful...they all make me smile.

  2. Dear Rita,
    I think that our weather has been the same as yours this year. Today, when I was out, the blossom trees are in full bloom and they make me smile too.
    ... and what wonderful images...that clutch bag is amazing.
    Keep smiling, Rita. XXXX

  3. All such beauties, I can't pick my the kitchen with the double sink and the shoes and the cupcakes...
    Hope you are having a great week!

  4. April is wonderful! I totally agree.

  5. OMG, that car, those shoes, that handbag...simply splendid every single image.
    Well done my lady. xx's Marsha

  6. My birthstone is Topaz. I think I'm going to say that my birthday is in April.
    Happy April,

  7. What a wonderful spring collection of beautiful things!

  8. Hi Rita - because of your lovely post, I declare that March is now my favorite month too. Since living in Texas I must admit that those summer months I loved so much in Seattle or not so much here. The spring here is truly the best of all months. Wishing you a terrific weekend. Hoping the sun shines and you get out to enjoy each moment. Love the midwest!

  9. Goodness gracious, everything on here is my favorite....DIAMONDS, WHITE HORSES, FRENCH INTERIORS.....Goodies studded in crystals, rhinestones. How did you know I am an April Child?:) THANK YOU for your kind words on my writing post; I so love blogging because it has given us a purpose to publish, but most of all, connect with people who have that JOIE DE VIVRE!

    Blessings to you dear Rita. Come back soon! Anita

  10. I want to change my birth certificate from January to April Rita! I've currently got dodgey old Garnets as my birthstone....I need diamonds desperately. The images in this post are just divine!
