Snow white Bushes but no Snow...

I love these bushes, covered by tiny white blossoms allover. Each year again they are the signs that spring has definitely arrived. This year they bloomed together with forsythia and thus created lovely compostions in some areas. See here.

Although one could think - if you don't look close - that these bushes are somehow covered by snow - and they sometimes get covered by snow in our region - their scent talks a different language. Bees and other insects love these bushes and their buzzing is somewhat soothing.
