April 2012 was a glorious month. 

Can you distinguish a late spring from an early spring by the blooming times of wildflowers? Do you know when to expect migratory birds in fall or spring? How many species of reptiles does your homestead harbor? Have you experienced weather conditions like these before, and what happened next?

It’s a fair assumption that most MOTHER EARTH NEWS readers value the nature around them, but it’s fascinating what you can learn if you start taking the time to document and record some of your observations.

April 2013 brought cold, even snow late in the month.
