April is a promise

Korean azalea (Rhododendron yedoense var. poukhanense)

April is a promise that May is bound to keep, and we know it.

Hal Borland wrote what he liked to think of as his "outdoor editorials" for the Sunday New York Times from 1941 until just before his death in 1978. Born on May 14, 1900, on the prairie in Nebraska, he grew up in Colorado, and then moved to New England in 1945. Borland brought to his writing both personal life experience with nature and the wisdom and ways of rural America.
