Snow in April

昨夜の予報ではたしかに「雪」でしたが、まさかとたかをくくっていたら本当でした。朝起きたらやっと咲き始めた花にこんなふうに雪が積もっていました。

We had snow in April today.

桃にも、
Snow on peach blossom,



チューリップにも、
On tulips,



雪柳は花と雪の区別がつきません。

Can you distinguish flowers from snow on this "snow willow"?



今日の土曜日、お花見を予定していた人も大勢いたはずなのに、可哀そう。

The cherry blossoms look beautiful with snow on them. It snow in Kyoto at the end of March too. I was lucky to be there at that time. I just returned from Japan last week and still missing it - Please come over and visit my blog. I would like to have Japanese quilter friend - Hugs Nat

Most of April has been warm and sunny and it has been a golden month with the daffodiles putting on an beautiful display.

I love the snow on the peach blossoms.
