Leila Alhusaini shared these images from Richmond, Kentucky, of an uncommon—however stunning—occasion.
Though it isn’t unparalleled, it is vitally uncommon to get snow this late within the season! I took an early morning stroll to examine on my backyard and thought I’d share just a few footage.
The primary image is a view of my perennial border within the yard. My neighbor’s bushes and the woods behind her property present a lovely backdrop. The second and third are of a variegated dogwood in bloom. The remaining are simply varied flowers gilded with icy snow, together with a double quince, tulips, iris, and pansies.
With the whole lot draped within the shock late spring snow, the neighbor’s bushes present a lovely backdrop to Leila’s perennial border. It’s nice to have a neighbor who gives stunning views to increase the backyard!
A variegated dogwood (Cornus florida, presumably the range ‘Summer season Gold’, Zones 5–9) has an additional layer of white supplied by the snow. Surprisingly, so long as the snow isn’t too heavy, plenty of crops can deal with these late snows with little or no harm. Native bushes like this dogwood have tailored over time to deal with the vagaries of spring climate. The most important danger for harm will not be normally the chilly, however the weight of the snow on the leafed-out branches.
