Spring snow and apple blossoms

A late season storm brought a bit of snow to Flagstaff a few days ago. Our crab apple tree had just burst forth with blossoms earlier in the week. For just a few hours there was a delightful juxtaposition of colorful blossoms and new snow.

What? Wait! I’ve already written this! Last year, same time we had a late season snow that covered the blossoms on the crab apple tree.

As I said in that previous post, “Such is spring in northern Arizona. Warm and sunny days with occasional reminders of the departing winter.”
