April Snow? Well, Kinda.

On April 2 (unpictured), with 40⁰F (4.5⁰C) we actually saw a few, though very few, real snow flakes falling from the clouds.  But every year our “Spring Snow” is from the Aristocrat Pear trees, beginning this year on April 1.  A week later, April 8, the petals were falling like a blizzard!  By April 12, the trees were almost all green with only a few “snow-petals” left to fall.  Today’s rain will probably wash the rest off the trees and away down the storm sewers.  Summer is just around the corner.

  1. Reading about your “Spring snow” has encouraged me to see the brown and orange leaves here in New Zealand in a different light. We are a month or so away from winter, the temperature is getting colder, and leaves are beginning to fall from trees. It’s not nearly as poetic or seamless, but maybe we’re experiencing a bit of “Autumn sun” as the days shorten and there are less hours of actual sunlight.

    Thank you for sharing. 🙂

      1. If we get any more this spring, I mail it to you! 😂
        Alternatively, if you and your parents ever come through Kentucky, USA, in the winter, Anita and I will show you around the snow, if there is any on the ground.

  2. I like spring snow the very best. Most of our trees are now green and I’m happy about that. Beautiful shots.
