Be lightly dusted with snow

 It's third snowing in this season.
 It's this morning view, but the snow disappeared this evening.

The traditional end of winter! (節分 Setsubun)

Today is the traditional end of winter.
We say it Setsubun in Japanese.
Temples hold soybean-throwing ceremonies  around Japan every year on Setsubun.
I ate sixty-five soybeans for keeping my health at Mizusawa Kannon.
