Happy New Year!
What a glorious day! It was sunny and fairly warm (37 with no wind). Perfect weather for my New Year's Day walk on the bike trail. Only a couple of people out with their dogs, so I had a nice time walking quietly, snapping pictures here and there. I didn't even take my iPod. I love the muffled sounds of snow dripping from the trees, birds calling out to one another, and the joyful shouts of children playing in the snow in their backyards. No need to have the distraction of music today.
New Year's Day provides a chance for a fresh start. I've decided to do away with my gardening blog and incorporate my love of nature within my book blog. Take a look at Emerson's quote in the header above. If Emerson can combine nature and books, who am I to argue?
