Spring snow

Spring is coming to an end.  I am looking forward to summer and sitting on my deck on warm nights reading a good book.  But I will miss spring.  I grew up in Southern California and seasons were just a concept.   The weather for the most part stayed the same.  Leaves didn’t change.  Flowers always bloomed.   After moving away from California I learned how enjoyable it is to look forward to the next season.  And in Boston I found that my favorite type of snow is “spring” snow.  It’s beautiful.

    great shots! I can’t believe you went from southern CA to Mass.! that’s a climate shock! lol.. I miss spring and fall here in Florida …:o( missed it for 10 yrs when i lived in san fernando valley Ca too ! Born and raised in NJ so I know spring and fall! anything longer than 1 month of hot summer or cold winter is too much of that stuff lol.. and here I am with 10 months of HEAT a year! I hope you weren’t near that tornado when it touched down up there!

      Hi Deslily. The weather shock wasn’t too bad since I lived a few years in Colorado before moving to Mass. But it is cold on the East Coast. I wasn’t near the tornado, but I know some people who were. It was quite a shock for many out here. How is the heat in Florida? I visited once during the summer and the humidity was a force to be reckoned with.

    Beautiful pictures of true beauty. I was raised in northeastern Nebraska and seasons were bred into who I was. I lived in Tulsa, OK for 11 years and was miserable at what I deemed to be a lack of seasons. Or at least a lack of a good spring and fall. Kansas City is more my speed. Not quite perfect, but closer anyway. I need the seasonal weather changes to stay sane and feel grounded.

      I haven’t been to Kansas City yet. I drove through it once, but that doesn’t count. I agree, seasons do help me feel grounded and in tune with nature. Happy Father’s Day!

    These are beautiful pictures. I can smell the scenery. 🙂 I’ve never lived in a place where the seasons change. I visited Indiana once and wanted to take home every orange leaf I found. It was like a tree on fire.

    • TBM says:

      Watching the leaves change in the fall is beautiful. I am still like that, but now I just take photos instead of trying to keep all the leaves or flowers that I see. Seasons are wonderful. But there is something to be said for California weather. It was great while growing up. To be able to play outside all of the time. I don’t think I would have appreciated seasons as much as a child.

    I have to chime in. These are fantastic pictures, relly lovely… I love petal showers. So surreal.

    Wow really nice pictures. I can feel how wonderful to be there. Unfortunately I can’t find it in my country, I wish I could go there someday.
