APRIL @ Artist Retreat
Information below was created in April 2010. Since we don't expect to be in Mentone during April 2011, this will have to do for this year.
Photos and other info below will show you what to expect
if you visit in April of any year.
April 2011 @ Artist Retreat- Wildflowers growing wild all over the mountains. Dogwoods blooming all over. Wisteria blooms for about a week, then disappears again. Getting ready for Spring Fling at Mentone Springs Hotel and the Annual Art at the Barn at Sweet Seasons Farm, both in early May.
For more April events, check out the Mentone Arts Events Page.
Here is 4/8/2010 ... Mouse-over photo to see Azaleas bloom (April 20th)
Wisteria bloomed out around 4/15/10, then was all off the vines and on the ground by about 4/25/10.
Wisteria covered ground like snow by 4/23/2010 ... Mouse-over photo to see "drifting Wisteria" after 4/25 rainstorm.
April is a great month to visit Mentone!

Wildflowers starting to bloom all over make it a beautiful area to just wander around.

Temperatures are still a bit cool and very comfortable for just sitting on the front porch swing and watching the world go by.

Below shows a typical week's weather during the month of April in Mentone, first for 2010, then for 2011.
