After The April Rain ...


“Our spring has come at last with the soft laughter of April suns and shadow of April showers.”

Magnolia's Evening Song ...


“For the winter is passed. The rain is over and gone. The flowers are springing up. And the time of the singing of the birds has come.”
                 ~ Song of Solomon 2: 11-12
