Spanish Proverb about April

fleurs de cerisier 3

Monique wrote from France, "I just caught the end of the Spanish news on T.V.  The lady presenting the weather forecast said a proverb about April:

‘Buenos amigos y buenos abriles, uno entre miles.’  Meaning, ‘Good friends and good Aprils, one out of thousands.’"

Thanks for sharing the proverb and your photo Monique!

    In French, we have a proverb “En avril, ne te découvre pas d’un fil, en mai, fais ce qu’il te plaît” (In April, don’t dress less warmly by a thread, in May, do as you like) meaning in May you can either dress warmly or lightly. We say either the whole thing or only one depending on which month we’re in and also according to the weather.
