Spring Snow

‘Weather is a great metaphor for life – sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad, and there’s nothing much you can do about it but carry an umbrella.’ – Terri Guillemets

I didn’t believe him.  The weather man said we were getting an inch of accumulated snow.  It was 75 degrees Fahrenheit the weekend before, how could we get snow?  (Why is the United States the only country that still uses inches and Fahrenheit?)

Guess what?  He was wrong.  We got 2 inches of snow, really wet snow.  Yes, snow in April sucks. Everyone was complaining, but the streets were too warm for it to create any problems and it wasn’t too terribly cold.  Don’t tell anybody, but I thought it was beautiful.  I may have even loved it.  

As I was driving around running errands in the morning, I so wanted my camera to take pictures of the wet snow clinging to the bare tree branches.  I knew the warming temperature would melt the snow soon.   Finally I couldn’t wait any longer, I stopped my errands, took my camera out and captured the spring snow.  

I am joining Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds today.   My find is spring snow.  My images were textured with the Kim Klassen texture dollard soft and gentle.   
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!

  1. Michelle, I don't know what I love more - your positive attitude, your beautiful pictures, or your determination to make time to take these pictures. I would have ditched the errands, too! The combination of snow and spring makes for some very distinctive photos. What perfect compositions that highlight the transition of the seasons.

  2. yes we got it too but only a dusting out here on the island. Still....not the loveliest of finds on an april morning

  3. Well, I'm so glad that you did stop those errands, these are beautiful. Love the photo of the snow covered trees and the green grass, how often does that happen! ;)

  4. These are just beautiful ....not often do we see snow laid spring flowers and green grass. I love the fence and woods shot!

  5. What beautiful images Michelle with the snow, I hope it didn't hurt anything but it sure made for some pretty images. Love the trees so gorgeous.
