New Year Wishes

I can hardly believe another month has gone by...and with nary a post to this blog! It has been a busy month, with preparations for the holidays..... including several handmade projects I made as gifts. (more on that in a later post?)




The above photo was taken on December 6th. I was fascinated to see the cloud formation, which was quite unusual for a Winter sky. Anyone have a name for these type of clouds?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a
Happy and Prosperous New Year!!

It is officially time to get out the seed catalogs that have been stacking up, and do some serious shopping! :-)

And a Happy New Year to you!! Not sure of the name of the clouds, Dale called them "angel butts" in a photo he took that was similar. :)

Beautiful photo. And I can't do any better than "angel butts". ;-) Darla

oh, please do post photos of your projects/gifts! that would be sweet.
Your flowers with snow on them reminded me of when I was on a walk on a country road in the winter and saw a "johnny-jump-up" covered with snow on a hillside and thought to myself, "I want to be a person like that...blooming with beautiful color and bringing glory to God when all other flowers have faded."

Lovely photo of the clouds, sorry I can't help with the name.

Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed New Year.

Hugs, Jan

I'm too lazy right now to look up the name of the clouds, but I can later ;). I, too, am getting out seed catalogs to make lists and orders. It is so exciting to plan for a year of gardening. The last two years have been significantly disappointing, but there is always hope for another year! Let's see those projects, Connie!!!

I've always called them "Mackeral" skies because they resemble fish scales and are supposed to be a sign of good weather coming.

I finished all my Christmas projects just in time and it's nice to start knitting for myself again.

Happy New Year!

I found your blog yesterday - a jump from another blog. I think I've gone through almost all of your posts.

I was searching for garden-related blogs, because I want to start planning my garden soon. I have a tiny area, but it's become a favorite hobby.

Happy New Year! I look forward to your next post

Gosh Connie, it's been ages since we've heard anything from you. I hope all is well and that you're enjoying the spring.

Hi Connie,

Just drop by your blog and impressed by the photo,...

We call this type of clouds "fish scales" here in Hong Kong / Southern part of China.

Wish to see more photos from your blog.
