Snow has been falling all day. I had hoped there would be no accumulation because of the warmth built up in the soil from so many sunny, warm April days this year ... ha!!
The snow is wet and weighing heavily on fagile petals of these magnolias and another pink-bloomed bush. Temps are below freezing, of course, and you have to wonder how these blooms will survive. So far they are still looking beautiful, and even rather perky, under the blanket of snow.
Branches are coated with a layer of ice making one wonder if the boughs will break as the wind blows.
Another opportunity to observe our powerlessness in the face of nature's capricious whims. Hope you are all safe, dry and warm and can look out at the beauty of this snow storm, rather than feel its sting.
