I think that after the long s (looks like an f without the horizontal stroke) 
there is a "e" which matches more or less the last "e" in "novebre" and 
"decebre" (I am not sure they have an accent, though).

So, to me, it the april label reads "aberil" both times. 

The third letter, again, to me, looks like the "funny phi" in the flower 
petals and the oladabas page. So it could be a "p" after all?

More later.
