April Snow

April Snow

Yesterday we had some more spring snow. These pretty little purple flowers that bloom in the lawn are known as Chionodoxa or Glory of the Snow, so I guess they are just living up to their name! They are small bulb plants native to the eastern Mediterranean.

  1. How pretty. It always amazes me how resilient plants are!

    One of the great things about blogging is you get to hear how different things are in other parts of the world. Here, in England, UK, we are enjoying temperatures in the 70s – unseasonal for the time of year; hence the early arrival of some flowers. It is very dry though.

    • thanks – yes the weather sure is unpredictable at this time of year – two weeks ago we had a day that was 25 degrees C (80F). Your climate is much more moderate than here and it’s great you are capturing all those lovely flower images!

    • Seems those flowers always get snowed on – I never knew what they were called until I looked it up this morning. April weather is a mystery for sure, and in the past few years we have gone right from cold, freezing temps to hot summer ones overnight. I’m thinking you’ve had similar weather in Michigan.
