RDP Saturday: April

Daffodil 01.04 (3)

April began with daffodils: great, everything under control.

Dianthus in snow

On 4th April it snowed in the night and all day afterwards and my dianthus got covered. It was wet snow and nothing froze, only my opinion of Spring froze.


And from the beginning of April until now the local supermarket are offering free samples of crickets to eat as a snack whilst walking around the store. They were dead and dry and quite tasteless.

Cows 02.04 (7)

I saw the first cows outside on the meadow after spending Winter in the barn.

Japanese Cherry Tree 06.04 (1)

The Japanese cherry trees unfolded their flowers.

Stork 06.04 (7)

The storks began nesting and No. 1 baby had already left the egg.

Magnolia 06.04 (5)

The magnolia trees were in flower.

Crane 11.04 (2)

My first insect arrived one evening in the kitchen, a crane fly.

Apple blossoms

The first buds arrived on my apple tree.

Pigeons 11.04 (9)

And the pigeons noticed there was love in the air.

Yes, April is here.

    • It’s one of the new fads they have discovered in Europe. They say that insects are full of protien. Of course these crickets have been prepared and they are quite expensive to buy. I only tried them for the fun of it, but it did not impress me.

    • You can also buy meal worms in a paket, which do not look very appetising. I tried the cricket, but has no real taste or even meat.
      This year we had a fantastic spring.
