Happy April!

Happy April to all my friends and readers

April used to be the second month according to the Roman calendar. There are various ideas how it got it's name, one being the from the word "aperire" for open because that's what the flowers start doing but there are also rumours that it might come from the goddess Aphrilis or Aphrodite. The birthstone of this month is the diamond, one of the hardest and most appreciated gemstones.

Enjoy this month with the beautiful watercolour painting by Frank Koebsch with a view of a beautiful village in Northern Germany.

You can find many more wonderful pictures on their website here.


  1. I do intend to enjoy April and I do enjoy the painting you shared here. Happy April to you!

    1. And the same to you. I love Northern Germany, beautiful countryside, beautiful houses.

      Happy April.
