April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go.
~Christopher Morley, John Mistletoe
Indeed, our rural Kansas world looks like Emerald City - the wheat fields and the trees are as green as green can be. Dappled into that are the white and purple lilacs (I heard someone here say "Li-lahks" yesterday; that's the difference between Kansas and Oklahoma.)
Since April is indeed showing the green light and I am thinking "GO!!", I put out four of my banana trees today. Boy, I sure hope we don't get a freeze (or blizzard) in the next month.
