    I can’t find any mention of a Munson Library anywhere. I always go to your website and don’t used the reader, but I don’t even see tags with this one. No matter. This is exactly how our Iowa tulips used to look when our April snows arrived, and it’s one of my favorite memories. Sometimes the snow would be deep enough that only the flower heads themselves would be visible; they’d look like rows of votive cups sitting atop the snow.

      Oh — now I see. I don’t usually click the image to get to that next page.

      • If you click the image through generally the image is larger and if you click again it is at full size which at the resolution I use fills the screen.
        We did not get much more snow than what you see here, but a few towns to our east got anywhere from 6-10 inches so their tulips probably did just bob above the snow.

    Spectacular shot, Steve. I had heard that western Massachusetts had gotten some snow, but was not sure if it had turned to rain as it did around Boston. Your photo provides evidence that it accumulated on the ground.

    • Thanks, Mike! We did get some accumulation before it turned to rain. The snow held its own so I was able to get this shot before it melted. In the next county east of us they had more sustained snow and ended up with several inches which, of course, was gone by the time I visited on the weekend.

    A remarkable combination! The snow seems to be making a brief appearance to let us know that the tulips are not as white as we think.

    • This does happen periodically with the occasional April snow. Fortunately it was not too deep and disappeared quickly. We have had more severe storms i the past so not all that bad for the flowers. White turned to cream with the snow.

    Bet those tulips wish they’d waited a little while – but they do look lovely in the snow!

  10. Nice clean arrangement showing how fickle nature can be! I like the white on white!

    • Yes and especially here in New England although you get your share of April snow as well. As Carol mentioned above, there is white and then there is white. πŸ™‚ I repair furniture for my work and I can tell you that there are so many shades of white and matching them is a bit less than fun. πŸ™‚

  11. I always feel bad for your precocious spring flowers when snow and cold hits them right after they have emerged. But these beautiful tulips might survive if the temperature does not stay below freezing for too long, especially since they are still closed. I wish them luck.

    That’s an awesome juxtaposition. Hopefully, the tulips handle extreme (to them) cold better than they handle extreme hot.
