crab apple blossoms in the snow


Our crab apple trees are in full bloom some time in mid April. Just one day after the bees were having a hay day on the blossoms we had a spring snow storm and this picture caught the heavy clingy snow which made the branches bend way low. Note the pattern with the chain link.
