We thought the snow was gone, then a sudden fall of large, fluffy flakes started and didn't stop until there was a fluffy coating on everything. It did not last long.

If you don't like our weather, just wait 5 minutes and it will be different. Today was gloriously warm and sunny. Now the weeds are taking off in the gardens and we are all trying to catch up on weed patrol. A few cherry trees in protected locations are in full bloom and the rest will pop as soon as we have several more warm days. I must check to see if there will be Japanese music concerts in the Tea Garden of the Arboretum again this year. I really enjoyed them last year when the cherries bloomed.
