    A snowy spring

    A photo of tulips bowing to the effects of snow

    These tulips were among the many flower blooms and tree blossoms attempting to fight off the chilling effects of a late-season snow that fell across Michigan on Tuesday and early Wednesday morning. The reminder that winter has not quite given way to spring, no matter what the calendar says, could be seen across the Ann Arbor campus as temporary splashes of white painted scenes of sometimes shining, occasionally forlorn beauty.
