    Brrrrrr image

    Nice to look at, but makes getting on with ordinary life a bit of a pain here.  I guess in Canada you are much more geared up for it.  How does your garden cope under a blanket of snow?

  • Oooops! Sorry I mean Billimage 

  • Star gaze lily My best friend for 70 years who just passed was Bob,everyone called him Bill and me Bob so thanks for the memories.I made the santa and raindeer for my house but my Son took it to his place,he has terminal lung cancer.

    Chicky its all I've ever known and when we get a rain then it freezes than snows we have to be so careful walking,the ice under the snow is deadly. as for the snow and plants,if it wasnt for the snow we would lose most of our perennials as its like a blanket.

    The older I get harder it is to take,but I'm happy I'm still looking down at it not up.


  • So sorry to hear about your son Bill. But i'm glad I cheered you up with some lovely memories.  Take care ximage

    Hi Bill, snow always seemed that deep when I was a girl, but I was only 2'6" tall. I do remember my Dad digging a path out of the house and the snow at each side was higher than me, but as I said I was tiny.image

    This is what we got in Yorkshire last Winter
