April is a time when spring is busy re-creating the green world, a month full of renewal and promise.

Trees are leafing out after winter’s long sleep.

The undergrowth in the woods is greening, growing and thickening.

Spring’s floral procession is advancing quite nicely, with many short-lived blooms coming and going.

And not everything bright and colorful is a flower.

Lots of birds are courting and nesting.

Some can be spotted in familiar places once again.

Other birds are returning from far countries- spring migration is underway.

Other creatures are stirring in the nice weather.

It’s an exciting time of year for people too!

This completes the 12 months of Ohio.ย  To check out the whole series as well as other topics, visit the Blog Index page.ย  I hope you’ve enjoyed it!
