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.
