There are signs of the Spring in the air but luckily it’s been snowing almost everywhere so our white fluffy friends in the zoos have had a chance to enjoy their right element.

In Vienna Nora and Finja were gladly surprised waking up to a snowy February day.


Look, Finja – we have snow today!


I’d better get the toy before it will be hidden by the snow.


Playing in the snow makes the toy double so fun!!


I wonder if it tastes different ….


Dear child, it’s your turn to play with the tube.


Doesn’t she look cute!


Oh bear, the snow is so soft.


I can have a snow bath and play with my toy at the same time. How practical!


The latest hat fashion. It sure protects your hairdo but it might prevent you from seeing so well. 🙂


Mama, don’t you think I look very elegant?


Even the yellow toy feels much more fun in the snow.


Just lying on the white stuff makes me so happy! I hope the snow will stay with us at least for some days!


Of course, Finja wanted to dive into the cold water, too.


Splashing is always great!


Shaking off the water – no towels needed here!



It’s been a long snowy day and a growing ice princess needs more energy. What luck mama Nora’s milk bar is always open for Finja.

Nora seems to be thinking ‘how much can that girl drink?’. 🙂

  1. Liebe Jutta,
    liebe Mervi,

    oh wie schön ist dieses erste Schneevergnügen für Finja und das Spielzeug bekommt ganz neue Verwendungsmöglichkeiten!
    Nach ausgiebigemToben im Schnee ist Mamas Milchbar eine gute Kraftquelle für neue winterliche

    Herzliche Grüße und vielen Dank an Jutta Kirschner!

  2. Dear Mervi and dear Jutta!
    Thank you for the lovely photos of Nora and Finja!
    I´m happy for the bears that they could at least enjoy some days with ice and snow. It is plain to see how much they liked it! The toys are obviously very much appreciated by both bears and I had a good laugh about Finja´s hat creation.
    I cannot choose a favourite among the photos, they are all fabulous.


  3. Dear Mervi and Jutta
    Nora and Finja look really good in the snow. Thank you for lettingus visit them. Vienna seems such a long way away in lockdown.
    Finja is lucky to have such a playful Mum.
    Nora looks as if she is quite happy to keep the milkbar open.

  4. Thank you very much dear Mervi and Jutta.
    Best wishes to Nora and Finja.

  5. Dear Jutta and Mervi!
    Thank you for the pictures of Nora and Finja in the snow. They had a lot of joy with the toys.

  6. Die Kooperation zwischen FINJA und NORA, Frau Kirchner und Mervi bedarf nicht vieler Worte der Guckenden und Lesenden. ‘Wundervoll!’ ist als Ausruf garntiert und on Top kommt noch ein ‘DANKE!” 🙂

  7. Liebe Jutta

    Schön, dass die Bären auch in Wien Schnee hatten.

    Das Mädel ist groß geworden. Ihr schöne Mama hat mit ihr sicherlich viel zu tun.
    Danke Dir für die feinen Bilder!

    Viele Grüße,
