Sunflowers painted on canvas of Manitoba snow to show support, hope for embattled Ukraine Social Sha

A Manitoba woman has turned her ever-growing snowbanks into a blooming sign of hope and support for Ukraine.

Karen Hiebert, who describes herself as an amateur artist, used stencils and paint to create a garden of sunflowers along the snowbanks bordering her driveway in East St. Paul, just north of Winnipeg.

Sunflowers are the national flower of Ukraine and have emerged as a global symbol of solidarity for the country and its resistance against Russia's military invasion.

That symbol was reinforced a couple of days after the invasion began last week. A viral video showed a woman confronting an armed Russian soldier and demanding he take her sunflower seeds and place them in his pocket so they might bloom when he falls dead on Ukrainian soil.

It was after seeing that video that Hiebert decided sunflowers would be her snowbank subject.
