Fluffy clouds are the epitome of spring don't you think? (And chestnut candles are too, but we aren't used to them in the US so it is hard to convey how much they mean spring in Europe!)

What are chestnut candles?

The flowers on the chestnut trees. Here's a wiki link so you can see more closely what I mean, though I don't think the pictures do the flowers justice! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horse-chestnut_(tree)

I played a concert Saturday under a flowering chestnut tree, we had to be careful not to breathe in any of the fluff.

Did any blossoms get stuck in valves and such? This is not a typical violin problem, but can just imagine a trombone blasting flower petals!
