Snowmen in Australia?

Remember when Suzanne sent this charming picture of the kangaroos that she took on the golf course? Don't they look surprised to see snowmen?
This mound of snow, and several more like it, represent a lot of hours of shoveling, mostly by Daniel. Thanks, Daniel!
This morning when I took my walk I was thinking that I really do love snow. It is the most marvelous sound proofing agent. I enjoyed complete silence, broken only by. . . could it be? Birdsong. I truly think I heard a robin this morning. I didn't see one, but I think they must be starting to come back. A sure sign of spring!
We're afraid to knock the icicles down. They would probably break the window. That's a massive ice dam draped from the gutter.

It's been a busy couple of weeks, and the sum total of my crafting this weekend is a tiny pink hat and scarf for the snow baby and four small hand quilted butterflies on the flower basket wall hanging. Oh, and a few rows on a black cat I am knitting. :>}

Wishing you the best.

Beautiful snowman and I love how you placed them in front of the kangaroos.
I really love seeing your snow photos and that one with those icicles is just sor serene and beautiful.

I love the snow photos, also the dinky buttons you showed yesterday! And the look on the kangaroos faces!

Wow, you've got a lot of snow there yet, Diana, and that's some serious ice you have there too. We had a bit of warmer temperatures here yesterday and the sun even came out. It was a nice break from the cold. I love your little snowmen--they are so cute! :)
