fantastic-I can't imagine dealing with bonsai in such cold--here in the riverland of south australia we are into our second week of 40 to 45 degree centigrade- with a few more scorchers yet to come .Most of my plants are beginning to look a bit secondhand--hopefully after this weekend we will be back down to low to mid thirties and should be easier to keep the moisture up.

Ed and Jerry,

It's really a joy to see your excellent trees with a mantle of fresh snow.....beautiful Very Happy I come from a state that is snow covered from November to March but because of the extreme cold and winds our bonsai cannot be left on display benches. This January has been setting records for cold with the lowest in the Minneapolis area -51c. Yesterday the children waited for their school bus with -41c.

We're seldom able to bring our trees out until April and even then get random snow storms such as this photo taken April 21, 2002. Grass was green as were some tiny cones on the collected larch(tamarack)...the forest was photographed, thanks to my son, with a backdrop quickly installed to show the falling snow.

Norma, a breathtaking forest of yours!
Ed, here is my two cents worth of bonsai in the snow in Moscow. Non local trees here can tolerate only the very first snow and frost. At that point I have to quickly take them to a shelter. This hormbeam forest and crabapple photoed right before they are taken to the cell...

Best regards, Andrei Darusenkov

I love all the snow bonsai photos. I grew up in the midwest (including some time in Minnesota), so I'm very familiar with snow. I'm just glad I live where that is a rarity. On 11 December 2008 we had our first measureable snowfall since February 1988, over 20 years! Anywhere else, it would not count, since it was not much and all was melted off by 09:00. But we were excited! Rolling Eyes
Here are a couple of shots I managed to take before it all melted off.
First, is a Satsuki azalea which had a flower.

Next is a water elm. Both are bonsai in development and not exhibit worthy, but the snow makes them interesting to me.

The last is a cedar elm (Ulmus crassifolia) which has been exhibited.

Alan, I too like your cedar elm very much. How long have You been working on this one?
Morea, I hope it warms up soon there, it was 70 F degrees here today but it has been below average for the last week.

This was a snowstorm last spring i think. Unfortunately we don't see very much snow in this part of Sweden, just a LOT of rain... This winter has been cold a dry wich is rather unusual, but no snow at all... The snow usually comes in spring when all the trees are brought out from their shelter and you think it's safe Very Happy

Ken: I acquired the collected material in 1990. In 1995 Dave DeGroot helped me find the basic form I've been developing since.
My regular elms are leaving out now, but the cedar elms are a little slower and don't usually start leafing out until late February.
We're enjoying warmer weather now, too. 70s F for highs and about 55-60 for lows. Repotting time will soon be over.

I think bonsai with a dusting of snow on them are beautiful. Thanks to all for sharing them.
