April snow in Geneva

After a warm and sunny March, the snow has returned to Geneva. It started to snow in the evening and continued overnight. When I woke the world was transformed. I took my dog for a walk in the snow, she loves it. And I could not resist taking too many photos.

Chateau de Penthes in the snow

Chateau de Penthes was built in 1761 to replace an earlier fortified house dating to the 14th century. The surrounding grounds are now a leash-free dog park.

April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land — T.S.Eliot

Among twenty snowy mountains,
The only moving thing
Was the eye of the blackbird.
– Wallace Stevens
