April is known as a rainy month with promise of flowers in May. I hope the drought ends for everyone with the refreshing rain. I have shared below some pics of the azaleas in the Memory Garden. Look what the rain has done to make this year a fantastic bloom! I hope you all plant flowers. Now is a good time. Enjoy!

Name and origin

The Romans gave this month the Latin name Aprilis[1] but the derivation of this name is uncertain. The traditional etymology is from the verb aperire, "to open," in allusion to its being the season when trees and flowers begin to "open," which is supported by comparison with the modern Greek use of ἁνοιξις (anoixis) (opening) for spring. Since some of the Roman months were named in honor of divinities, and as April was sacred to the goddess Venus, her Veneralia being held on the first day, it has been suggested that Aprilis was originally her monthAphrilis, from her equivalent Greek goddess name Aphrodite (Aphros), or from the Etruscan name ApruJacob Grimm suggests the name of a hypothetical god or hero, Aper or Aprus.[2]

April Showers (song)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"April Showers" is a popular song with music written by Louis Silvers and lyrics by B. G. De Sylva. First published in 1921, it is one of many popular songs whose lyrics use a "Bluebird of happiness" as a symbol of cheer. ("So keep on looking for a bluebird, and waiting for his song.")
The song was introduced in the 1921 Broadway musical Bombo, where it was performed by Al Jolson. It became a well-known Jolson trademark: the first of his several recordings of the song was on Columbia Records in October 1921. It has also been recorded by many other artists.
