Here are a couple of pictures I took January 1, 2007. It was morning and the sky to the west was so dark, then with the sunshine, it was just beautiful. This is the view from the back of our home, I see this whenever I am at the kitchen sink. 🙂 In a couple of the pictures you can see the remain sunflowers still standing. The Bluejays love those! 🙂 As you can see it is mild and we have no snow. My children are beginning to think we are not going to see snow this winter, maybe they are right too. Time will tell, I guess.
