snow cones


No, it still hasn't snowed in Amboise.  Darn it.   But as promised here are those spherical shrubs at the the château d'Amboise in last year's snow.  In the States, there is a summer treat that is basically a man-made snowball on top of a paper cone with sugary flavoring poured on top... et voilà, a snow cone !

  1. This will just have to do until the Great Blizzard of 2014 strikes every part of Europe next month and leaves a metre and a half of snow....

  2. Une sinfonie en blanc ! The sun colouring the white even brighter. You made a magic shot.

    1. Glad you know what they are. Wasn't sure if they'd been heard of down under.
