    I love those painted on flowers. I can remember many years when I thought I'd lose my mind if the snow didn't stop coming and cold finally cede to the spring weather.

    I love the painted on flowers, too. When we lived in Idaho (and even down here in Alabama) I went to the dollar store and the thrift shops and found the plastic flowers, cut the stems down and then took that black electrical tape and taped the pretty blossoms onto our lilac bushes, and the azaleas, and all winter long, we had bright flowers blooming outside.
    The next spring, they were still looking great when the shrubs turned green again, so we even had interesting colored flowers along with the real blossoms when they showed up.
    People driving by would stop to look and one even asked me where I found those odd-colored azaleas.

    With all the snow we have had in the past while, my "SNOW FLOWERS" are doing just fine..
    I suppose they have started to grow and will most likely look pretty healthy as we also had some pretty low freezing temperatures especially at night.. Around the -24c mark...
    So far this season, we have received about 3 feet of snow... That's about 90 cms....

    You are doing GREAT, @Steve North , just keep on collecting all of that snow up there in Ontario. We do not need it or want it down here in Alabama, and you are most welcome to any that might be coming in our direction, too.
    We want to do our part to help your snowflowers grow really TALL under that snow this winter.
    Blessings.....
