No wonder April's birthstone is the sparkly bright diamond! Sheep and lambs are special to April, too, as wobbly, wooly babies scamper across the fresh green fields. Look for (but please don't eat!) rambling vines of sweet peas now, April's birth flower. They aren't healthy for us to eeat, but guess what: these climbing, clinging, unstoppable vines with flowers of all colors grab hold of Spring and anchor her to Mother Earth--and in our hopes, hearts, and happenings, too! Sweet Peas are super-easy to grow, with large seeds that are easy to handle. Now is a good time to plant them along a fence or a rough wall with places for them to hang on and climb. Be ready, though: they will spread out all over, filling your space with a rainbow of colors and the sweet, light heavenly scent of Spring!
