Same country, small country so not so far away from you, but no snow here. It has been freezing, but while there is a pretty thick layer of ice in the water filled containers I have outside, it has not been freezing very hard.

Here, right on the middle of the Spanish peninsula, it has been very cold. Actually few nights of continous frosts have occured. However, the courious thing is that in spite of that it hasn't snow one single day. Actually, I've been leaving here for three winters now and I've only seen snow fall once. And yes, temps do fall bellow the 0 degrees threshold on regular basis, no snow though. Oh, rain do has fallen alright. As for my trees, they are all outside except for my Ficus and they all seem to be doing fine. Fingers crossed :)

I did not know that outside Bonsai can tolerate the snow. I live in Texas and our winters can be very windy and cold. So I covered the Bonsai when the temperature dropped to freezing.

Snow is an insulator, but most species we grow are hardy. The only damage snow may do is to break branches.
Priblem is if there is frost first then snow on top they will not thaw out until the snow has gone.
But here no snow even thought they keep telling us we will get it just a bit of frost so nothing to worry about. I did hope to start some repotting soon, but I think I will have to postpone that for a week or two.

Yes here too, some parts have had the snow but not us. I am hoping that I can get some re potting done tomorrow as long as they have thawed out. We have our winter show with a workshop so I need to have something to work on.

It's 31 degree here in Sydney and we enjoy a sunny, Mediterranean-style climate all year round. :)
