snow blooms

Last year we had a late March snowstorm that blanketed the ground with several inches of the white stuff.  This week we’ve been enjoying ridiculously warm temperatures and I swear if you just watch for a couple of minutes you can see things blooming right before your eyes.  I decided to walk to a nearby grocery store to pick up a few things for lunch and passed a side yard that was blanketed in pink and white blossoms.  Simply stunning.  I hear the rain is coming, and it won’t take long for the petals on the ground to brown and wither.  What a treat to catch them right as they fell.
