{ Spring Snow }

Yes, snow… on April 18th.  To me, this is no big deal.  Being a northern Minnesota girl, we typically expect one more good snowstorm in April before spring really comes later in May.  Easter to me has never meant frolicking in a pink dress through tall green grass looking for eggs in the bright sunshine.  It usually meant bundling up in our winter coats and muddy boots to fly kites in Grandma’s backyard. That is, as long as it wasn’t pouring rain or snowing  😉

West Michigan, however, must not be used to this… my facebook feed was a flood of lamenting over the unexpected snow. No complaints from me, it gave me a chance to try out my new macro lens. And to breathe that fresh crisp air that only a snowfall can bring. 🙂

    Gorgeous! You make that snow actually look appealing…though I think I’ll stick to my 88* weather 😉

    ooh, these are gorgeous Kristen! The combo of spring buds + snow is beautiful . . . as long as the cold doesn’t end up killing the spring blooms!! 🙂
