April has got to be the most beautiful month in the southern Okanagan. For a climate that is such a dry, hot desert in the middle of summer, sping allows her to show her true appreciation to her Creator. Everywhere you turn, trees are bursting into bloom. And not just the fruit trees although they are the most obvious. Backyards are exploding in color. Vibrant yellows of the forsythia bush. Soft pinks of the magnolia. Vibrant pinks of flowering almonds. And every color of tulip, crocus, hyacinth and daffodil. My lilac bushes are loaded with tiny purple clusters, a couple more weeks & they'll be in fragrant blossom. My favourite of all smells in the spring! The beauty of this season just blows me away!
