April, the Grand Opening

1st April 2009


(from Common Ground)

Some doubt remains as to the actual derivation of April’s name, but the general consensus links it with the Latin ‘aperire’, to uncover or open, and this seems fairly appropriate for the month when, as Phlip Larkin wrote:

“The trees are coming into leaf
Like something almost being said”
