Snowy Pinks

Monday, April 09, 2007

Washington's trees were dressed in their finest Easter pinks when Mother Nature decided to add lace in the form of a surprise spring snowfall early Saturday morning.

That last gasp of winter had me initially worried about the fate of my newly transplanted lettuces. But then distracted by the beauty and rarity of mixed-up seasons, I soon didn't care.

Lettuce seeds I can plant any day this month. It's not every day I get the chance to photograph the spectacle of winter and spring all at once.

These are pretty fabulous photos. Those delicate little blossoms look like they're lying in sugar. Just beautiful.

What great pictures... see, I would like this kind of snow for much the same reasons. The foot plus that we had is just too much. It buries instead of highlights!

Gorgeous photos. I was thinking the same thing too. I hated the thought of the blooms getting frozen but they are beautiful with a little of the white stuff piled on top.

Thank you, everyone. I am glad you enjoyed the photos. The snow was just enough to be beautiful, but not too disruptive of everything that's blooming.

Für deinen Gruß von Stuttgart, danke. Mein Vater lebte nahe dort. Ich wünsche dir gute Tage in deinem Garten.
