The Snowmen

Despite having so many snowstorms this winter, including about four in March, I was not able to find as many snowman as usual. So here is this year's bunch. I found this huge snowman made from hay bales. Then I helped the girls make this cute  snowman from a little lantern. I have it on our microwave. I happened to drive by this faceless cowboy, and then found these snowmen made from trash barrels. Well, that's the lot for this year. I don't think I will miss the snow.

Wonderful snowman! Love your header!

maybe it was just too darn cold out to build a snowman. We had so many days where the temperatures were in the negative range.
Those are cute snowmen though. The cowboy is my favorite

I like the idea of making them from paper lanterns. No melting...no mess.

What a fun collection of snowmen! We never made a snowman in the snow, but we did build a fantastic igloo.

O.K., after a week in Florida, I can smile at these snowmen!! You've had much the same winter as we have. Enough!!

I'm just catching up with my blogging friends. Missed you.

Best,

You should visit the school I get the children from.Snowmen spring up like magic on the first milder day,when the snow will stick together.

We didn't have snow this year, so no Snowman in The Netherlands.

Greetings,

We had ice. I, too, am glad that cold is behind us for now. But your snowmen make a cheery collection.

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh wow, who needs snow when you have so many other wonderful snowmen around. The faceless cowboy is funny. I love the ones you and the girls did with the lanterns.

Time to get rid of it, I say! :) We had an unusually mild winter here so we've had weeks completely without snow by now. Still occasional night frost, though.

I'm surprised with all the snow you had this winter that there weren't more snowmen (made of snow) in your weather. Perhaps it was just too cold to make thee real thing. But I enjoyed the snowmen made from other materials.

LV said...

Loved seeing your assortment of snowmen. I Have SEEN ONE LIKE THE HAY, BUT NOT THE OTHERS. TRUST YOU ARE STILL DOING WELL.

Chris Scheuer said...

I like your fun snowmen Ginny but I LOVE that Scripture. What a beautiful picture!

Chatty Crone said...

Aren't you glad that your 'real' snowmen are gone?????

Haddock said...

I think when there is too much snow, the novelty of the snowman fades away :-(

Anni said...

Ps....Ginny, I agree with you about the black throated green warbler...they DO look more yellow to me too. But if the light is hitting it just right, the back side of the bird looks olive green...guess where the 'green' comes in. Who knows.

Surprising after all that snow that there were not many snowmen....maybe everyone is tired of snow??
