Book of Hours: Calendae, April

The month of April shows my family at work clearing the pasture of multiflora roses, an invasive plant introduced in the '50's.  It was described as a living fence which would grow so strong, a car could not be driven through it.  The living fence died, but not before the birds had spread the seeds to grow under large trees throughout the forest and woods.  This tree is a sugar maple, the largest in Missouri.
