Note: considering that I live in Holland, then yes this is exceptional winter weather that did not happend for well over two decades! An extream high air pressure system above the whole of Scandinavia is pretty unique believe me! And I do know that this weather is pretty normal in many countries around the world, but not were we live! And we applaud this weather because we are a ice skating nation! There is even hopeful talk that the world famous 11 city tour a 220 kilometres long natuur ice scating tour finaly can be staged again after more than 2 decades! So yes this is extream weather for us here!
Yesterday’s weather forecast of at least a week-long snow and very cold weather was not wrong for a change and I have to days picture to prove it! I woke up this morning to discover a magical snow-covered garden that I would love to share with you all!
Below: under need, this thick layer of snow more than 20 shohin pre-Bonsai Itoigawa Junipers are hidden!
Below: For some of the bigger Bonsai in my collection, there was no more room underneath my back yard shelter! But I am sure they don’t mind at all!
Below: My big Larch named the Elephant looking like a real scene you could see in nature.
Below: My big old Chamaecyparis obtusa nana gracilis mother plant looks beautiful!
Below: But her backside looks even more stunning!
Below: A magical top view of my big multiple trunk beech raft.
I hope you enjoyed these with my cell phone made pictures as much as I loved to make them for you all…it was magical in my little city garden to day!
Cheers and stay safe everybody!
