I could have spent hours outside taking pictures it was so beautiful but with the temps in the single digits it was too cold! This was taken in our back yard.

He looks like he needs a sweater and a hat! Beautiful against the snow though.

Yes, your giraffe sure pops in the white snow! Beautiful frosty day ...I know what you're talking about w/the cold! He does look like he needs a sweater & a hat & a lo-o-ng scarf! TFS! Jeanne S. ...and don't ya love how 'grasses' put on a show in the Winter! Very pretty here in your pic!

Sure brightens up a winter scene! What is the bike wheel over to the right? Does he have a 'buddy" out there? Love the "many colors of winter white" even looks like you planned the area of low growth to be lighter white than what is behind it. Nice!!Jan

Looks cold but a great pic. What is your giraffe made of?

The giraffe is a metal jungle-gym from a playground. When we found it, the front legs were rusted off. Tim welded new legs and added about 4' of rebar buried in the ground so it is secure in the ground. I think we got a great deal for $50!

Looks Great!! BURRRR What a wonderful find and to be able to repair it.

We are finally getting more snow here to. Glad to have it as we had some pretty cold weather until it started to snow again. Always warms up to snow.
