It's Not Easy Being A Snowman

While snowmen in other parts of Austria are living the high life,
Viennese snowmen really got the raw end of the deal.

Poor things.

Taken on my walk the other day. 


These scenes reminded me of one of my favorite books and movies
from when I was little:

We always cried at the end.
It really isn't easy being a snowman.

Ha! We had just about half that much snow yesterday when I woke up -- on the north side of the house, it actually lasted about half the day, too!

Not even enough to make a snowball, though.

paintandink: Of course, the day for which I had set this post to autopost it snowed all day!! And it is still snowing. The snowmen are happy now :-)

What a charming post! Well I think the snowman season is over in England now, in fact my daffodils are just coming into bloom :-)

The snowmen must be giddy, partying to their frozen hearts content, after all it is Saturday morning and still snowing! :-)

Maalie: It's been snowing here all week! Now daffodils in sight.

Merisi: It's a snowman party here! I guess the life of a snowman isn't too bad after all.
