nice. Years back my daughter did snow sculpture of our 1st dog. Of course I took a picture of it. Several years ago xuring
a rough period she was going through I framed that picture for her and she loved it.

Very nice! Pretty small front yard. Must have stolen snow from the neighbors.

When growing up.... I had next door neighbors who wouldn't allow us on their property when it snowed. They didn't want the snow disturbed.

It's small but probably a little bigger than it looks.

Some people are odd and strange, lol! You could've had ALL my snow!

That's neat. I admire the talent, as well as the willingness to do it out front where others can enjoy it as well. Wish that I could do that. A few years ago we had taken down a couple of dead trees along the road, the angles, location, and everything was perfect, such that even before felling the trees I could envision a couple of gnomes or whatever greeting passersby. So I lopped the trunks off about 3' or so above the ground, and a week or two later walked out with the chainsaw. Senility must have already been setting in though because about the time I started the saw I remembered that I don't even know where to start drawing something like that on paper, let alone carving it out of a stump. So the stumps got cut off.

I remember our first winter in our first home. I did a snowman and snowwomam. Apparently a neighbor did not like it. Within the hour it was two snowmen. Is a set boobs really that disturbing?

Were they in the realm of "normal" proportions to the rest of the body?

Yes, just two snowballs attached to the chest! Just enough to distinguish snowman from snowoman!

So they were taking exception to snowballs on the snow woman? Are you sure that you understood their concern correctly?

It was not a snow sculpture. Just three round snowball on top of each other. So how else would one distinguish a snowman from a snowoman? maybe I should've built a small snowchild between them. But then I can only imagine what the far left might have said about gender identification.

That's incredible! They need encouraging to continue their work. Maybe someday they will be competing in winter ice and snow carving competitions.
