  1. The imagination that made all these is wonderful.
    I saw a guy across the green from us making a family of large snowmen/women. I tried to take a photo as I drove passed (I did stop) but it didn’t work. When I came home some of the heads had been knocked off. Next day the same guy was out there rebuilding them. They were really good with hats, scarves buttons, arms and faces. But guess what a few hours later they were all headless again. …………..some people are heartless!

    Thanks for liking my blog :)

  2. Woah! Those are awesome snowmen, I especially like the upside down one, its so cool.
