Area gardeners not sad to see April come to end this year

Goodbye, April. I'm not sorry to see you go. It wasn't the rain I minded; April should be rainy to promote emerging plants and the newly planted to get a good grip before warmer, drier days arrive. I took a look at last year's calendar and April 2013 saw many rain-filled days. Oh, and when I turned the page in the 2013 calendar, I read that on the first week of May, it rained every day. Here's the difference: It wasn't as cold last year.
