Since we use the preposition 'in' with morning as well as with months, I wanted to be sure if 'on' is the correct preposition when the morning is qualified by a month instead of the usual phrases that have days or dates like on Friday morning, on the morning of November 15th, etc.

I would also like to know if the abovementioned sentence is phrased correctly in the first place.

Thank you

    Yes, it is correct. One might say, "I met her in the morning," being specific about the time. However, "I met her on a * morning," one among many mornings, is used with "on". Not sure I can give a rule *why, though. It is "English as she is spoke," en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_as_She_Is_Spoke Commented Jun 28, 2023 at 19:43

Yes, it's correct to use "on" in that sentence.

In that context, "morning" is used metonymically to mean "an April day in the morning". It refers to the day in terms of what time of day it was.
