    To start off the month with April Fools Day is a stroke of genius! This is the month that we can be outside more than inside and all those juices get flowing for new ideas, projects......and we have a fresh load of energy to accomplish anything!........at least that's what we think. The Fool reminds us of the folly of our wild ambitions, but in a fun way....so those of us who are accused of being the most "foolish" of all...we gardeners, who carry on again and again after fantastic failures, losses of money, aching backs, neglected housework, are in all our glory in April...planting things we HOPE, but know won't survive, adding one too many gardens to take care of and encouraging others to do the same. The Fool is willing to step off the precipice, without too much thought...and thank goodness, for without that serendipity, nothing would ever get done.
