Spring Surprise

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 7 May 2019 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Snow-ladden hosta hold firm against the snow that fell on April 27, 2019. The official snowfall amount at Chicago's O'Hare Airport was 2.5", while suburbs to the north received even greater amounts.

Thankfully, the snow was gone by noon the next day.

Happy Silly Tuesday!

For me, that I see in photos, is a beautiful surprise. But I believe that for those who live it, it will not be a good surprise.
