I have a point to make about the other snow that I really don't love - though it has to be my garden friend.
The daffodil - Narcissus Martinette - decided to show it's dark green shoots already in the fall with lots of leaves. I really don't know why! Here's what they looked like on January 5 At this stage we had several extremely cold nights -20 to -30 Celsius and not until later did we get a lot more snow.
Since then most of the snow has disappeared - and look at what the frost did to the Martinettes on the parts that were above the snow during the hard frost!All those tips are dead, but everything below that snow is still green and alive. HAVE to condition myself to LOVE that snow!!!
SOOO looking forward to this sight (photo from April 30, 2008):
