Spring snow!


A couple of days ago a late snowfall whitened most of Italy's northern regions. Here in Verona it began tuesday evening, feebly, stopped overnight (or probably it was just too light and melt) and started again on wednesday morning with bigger flakes that fell at a steady rythm for hours. The traffic was slowed down considerably and probably this caused discomfort for many people. I was lucky enough to enjoy the "show" at home, behind the windows... Only in the afternoon I went out to take a some pics....

The colours in your photo are amazing - so beautiful! But I feel sorry for the poor flowers.

A "cool" capture of the colorful Spring flowers! We had a lot of rain today and more this week so I wonder if our flowers will start to come out of hiding soon?!

The spring flowers in the snow are lovely, although the cold is surely no good for them!

What a beautiful neighborhood this is, Valeria. Will you show it to us again after the snow melts? I hope you enjoyed the snow show. You described and documented it perfectly.
