Welcome January

New Year, New Decade.....both off to a good start. Hopefully that's true for you as well!

In December (that old year and old decade) 13 bloggers took photos of the Colors of December.

For the past few months, we've been exploring the natural colors where we live and sharing them once a month as creative inspiration.

Thanks so much for participating! If you haven't had a chance, check out the Colors of December around the world.

I successfully avoided using any pictures with snow last month. But this month promises to be much whiter....I can safely say there will be snow in the Colors of January where I live.

I'll post my January colors later this month, and hopefully some of you will find inspiring colors in your neighborhood too!

Thanks for putting up the links again! There were a few i hadn't seen and it was great to revisit the others! Yes the snow is falling again here as well, but in small doses. There is now a fresh light covering on everything. I am looking forward to the Jan. photos! This is a great project. Evelyn

Yes, I think there will be snow in a lot of January photos...even in places where snow doesn't usually fall!

What a great idea....I just got done checking the photos out. Great scenery. Maybe you should all collaborate on a calendar. Just a thought.

Thank you for your comment in my blog! I think "mangle" is exactly the word I was looking for. Curiously it is totally similar to the Scandivian word "mangle" which also means the same!

I'm glad you're waiting until later in the month. We've had freezing fog for weeks and haven't seen the sun since we got home from SoCal. There's a chance yet~

Finding colours could be an interesting challenge for me in January, almost everywhere I look is white!

Our yard looks about the same but I think we have a little more snow!
