Welcome APRIL !!!! We made it through a very long winter! They are predicting a Minnesota spring “snowstorm” tonight but it can’t damper our spirits as the snow will not last long as April has arrived!
Whenever I flip the calendar page to April, I recall making a bulletin board for an elementary class room a few years ago. I had each child make an umbrella with flowers.
“April Showers bring May Flowers”
There is something magical about viewing the budding of trees and flowers = RE-BIRTH
The tulips and other colorful flowers peeking out of the once frozen earth = RE-LIFE
Look at this photo of tulips…
now view the photo through the glass window pane of rain droplets …
I feel the blending is symbolic of the
mixing of our life with re-birth!
Yellow tulips symbolizing “cheerful thoughts”, white conveying “forgiveness”, purple representing “royalty”, pink showing “caring” and the red tulip meaning ” love”.
All together they become variegated tulips
perhaps symbolic of
“beautiful eyes” with a variety of gorgeous color patterns.
All we have to do is “look” for beauty all around us and feel re-birth of our souls
dance in the rain!
Until next time with more Sweet Conclusions ...
