such a cruel hoax
a late spring snowfall
blanching the flowers
A heavy, wet snow started falling yesterday morning; by evening the ground was covered. It continued to snow most of the night; this morning everything colorful is buried under a thick blanket of white.
The poor robins will go hungry today. It’s a degree below freezing at present, so worms will be snuggled deep in their burrows and all the flying insects will be frozen stiff.
