April Showers....

Due to the trauma and drama of yesterday's April
storms, Tuesday Trivia will be today's post topic.
April---
The birthstone is the Diamond--In ancient
folklore, diamonds protected the wearer from
enchantments as awell as attacks from enemies.
Some say the having the diamond for your birth-
stone isn't that fun. But I say "they are still my
best friend." :)
This month's flower is the Daisy. Opening and
facing the sun, yet closing at the day's end,
characterizes how the daisy was named.
"Daeges-eaye" or "days eye" from the Old
English.
The zodiac signs are Taurus--The Bull-
patient and reliable.
Aries--The Ram-Named for the constellation
of Aries.
