This April, it snowed in Virginia—and I was reminded of the Prince song “Sometimes it Snows in April.” The poetry of pain in the middle of springtime rings particularly true during this pandemic.
So, I used the lyrics from the song to create snow-like type, which fell around blossoming dogwood branches. I selected the cardinal and dogwood, as they are the official bird and tree of Virginia—and they are also my mother’s favorite, both of which we would see often where I grew up in St. Louis.
