Last winter, we couldn't play outback, because of the snow. We know! You'd think a snowstorm would make a great time to play outback! But, it was two 24+ inch snowstorms with a couple of 12 inchers thrown in, so we couldn't even see above the snow! (Mommy did tackle it a few times to feed the poor birdies.)
Well, we weren't sure if the snow and salt, (since you need salt to melt ice), damaged any of our plants. We're happy to report little damaged. We're sad to report our favorite container didn't survive though. We had a coffee cup container that we loved. The snow broke it.
