Without a doubt, April is my favorite month here on Lake Norman. This year’s unseasonably warm weather accentuated the annual burst of life that we enjoy every April. Blossoms are everywhere as our trees go from sticks to fully leafed out. Blossoming Cherry Trees (like the one above) are joined by plum, apricot, crabapple, Rosebuds and, of course, our spectacular Dogwoods. Bright yellow Forsythia bushes and daffodils are quickly followed by the showy pick flowers of Loropedalums, Spireas. And then, the Azaleas burst with color all over the lake shoreline. The skis are bright blue, temperatures are mild enough for avid boaters. Life is good!
