Year in review meme


I got this meme from laurahinnj of Somewhere in NJ who got it from Patrick of Hawk Owl's Nest. All you have to do is quote the first sentence of your first post of every month in 2006. Have some fun and put one together for yourself. It can bring back some great memories. Here are mine:

Happy New Year! More...

The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show is considered one of the best shows in the world. More...

grey skies
drumming on the roof
raindrops on my face
a tiny hope of what might come
More...

On our rooftop Thursday, March 23. I don't know if either of these birds is the same one I photographed in Wednesday's post (Mockingbird Studies). More...

Oh, the honey-bees are gumming
On their little wings, and humming
That the summer, which is coming
Will be fun.
-- The House at Pooh Corner (A. A. Milne)
More...

One of my favourite wildflowers, and the only one that's currently growing as a volunteer in my patio, is the Hoary Tansey-Aster (Machaeranthera canescens), a member of the Sunflower family. More...

We spent the morning at the Northern Lights Wildlife Wolf Centre near Golden (see my post of June 23). More...

K. woke me this morning to tell me that there were three Red-tailed Hawks in the eucalyptus tree across the road: one adult and two juveniles. More...

Because of the intense summer heat in our area, we clean and refill our hummingbird feeders every other day, even though they usually aren’t empty unless a Gila Woodpecker has been visiting. More...

Well, it's been a long time since I've put a post up, but I had to share this Cooper's Hawk, which flew into the yard on Friday morning and spent some time hunting finches (unsuccessfully) in a small xylosma bush. More...

All Souls Day - Dia de los Muertos (November 2) is one of the most important days of the year in the Southwest, steeped in the traditions that have prevailed here since this area was once part of Mexico. More...

Within the quietness of a lull in visitors' absence,
appears the peony flower!
Yosa Buson (1716 - 1783)

That's a good idea ... I like the end of a year and how you feel you can start afresh. It's good to look back too - at the good things not so much at the unexpected shocks. Hoping for a better year for 2007 - you too? Cheers Pam!

What a splendid idea! The meme is certainly working its way around the blogosphere.

A happy 2007 to you!

cb - There've been wonderful things in 2006 and not so wonderful. All told, I hope that 2007 will be brighter and certainly bring more peace to the world.

snail - It's a lot of fun - and I'm enjoying reading other people's as well as my own.

To you both - a healthy, peaceful and very, very happy 2007!

I think I've read along for most of the year, but will have to revisit a favorite post or two!
