Google Analytics: Heirloom Gardener's April Traffic

One of the most interesting things I find about writing this blog is the readers it attracts. Without readers, there would be no point to this blog, so thank you very much for following, subscribing, searching, clicking, reading, commenting and linking.

Each month, traffic has grown significantly year-over-year, but not necessarily month-to-month as there is a definite seasonality to the readership (stronger in spring/summer). Using Google Analytics, here are some of the April Traffic statistics:
