Wishing you a Happy New Year!


This is a lovely post..Yes a different Christmas but we are keeping our loved ones safe and there is vaccine and Biden to give us hope..

Lady Fi

Lovely! Wishing you a year filled with good things.


We had a rainbow in Arizona after the one and only rain storm while we were there. They really needed it. Came back to Bellingham for Christmas and New Years. Left the RV in storage in Tucson again. It's a good spot for us between trips. Hope to return later in January, but things are a bit crazy right now with COVID increases. - Margy

It looks to me like your daughter captured a triple rainbow somehow. I'm still trying to figure it out. I love it.

I love your birds as well.

Wishing you a happy, healthy, and productive 2021.

Christmas rainbows! We had a white Christmas in VA. I love that I have been to St. Augustine at Christmastime too. Here's to a year documenting the beautiful world!

All the very best for 2021, Sallie. Maybe by the end of the year life will be back to somewhere approaching normal. I sure miss not being able to travel!

Veronica Lee

Love your pretty collage, especially the little bird in the center.

May this year bring new happiness, new goals, new achievements, and a lot of new inspirations on your life. Wishing you a year fully loaded with happiness, dear Sallie!

I hope you had a nice holiday season considering all that has happened this year with covid around. We are currently in our 3rd lockdown until Jan 31st and probably longer. Wishing you a happy and healthy 2021. Take care, Sallie.

Beatrice P Boyd

Different yes, but Christmas is still magical and wonderful if we just Believe and it appears you do, Sallie. Best wishes to you for a Happier New Year.


That was a really pretty collage, great little bird in the center. I hope that you made some new memories this Christmas, good ones. Now I wish you a Happy New Year; may 2021 bring you joy, good health and satisfaction.

Hi, I enjoyed my visit to your blog. The multiple rainbow picture is excellent! Thanks for taking us along on your walk to the river. Neat photos and especially the birds. Very nice photos from St Augustine too. Thank you for sharing and for your recent comment on my blog. Happy New Year to you and yours. John


Just to be doing well and healthy may well be the greatest gifts. Some of us had too many one events! Love the Christmas decorations:) Thank you for your Christmas wish and wishing you in turn a prosperous and relaxed 2021:) That it may be easier on all of us than this year.

Hope you still had a lovely Christmas, dear Sallie. All the best from the coming year!

I think this will have been a rather 'different' Christmas for many people!

Hope all is well.

Hi Sallie, Christmas is over and done with without too much fuss. Love your birds, we have similar oens but yours have more color.
So rare to see a rainbow this time of year. But maybe that will be more common in teh future.

Wishing you a Happy New Year
Take care!


Christmas is over now... therefore my best wishes for a good NEW YEAR 2021. Happy MosaicMonday

I love rainbows, happy holidays to you!


belated merry christmas wishes!!! your images are beautiful and the little chickadees are so cute!!!

MaryBeth Schwartz

Merry Christmas to you and yours and a very Blessed New Year.
We are having a bit of leftover snow so we do have a white Christmas.

Beatrice P Boyd

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Sallie, and hope you have as enjoyable a holiday as possible. Yes, it's a different Christmas that's for sure, but being safe and well and home and knowing family and friends are the same, although distanced, is a gift enough for us. I am sure many others, while saddened at not seeing loved ones, feel the same.



Peter B.

Have a very Merry Christmas!

Blessed & peaceful Christmas Sallie! It is wet, grey and a bit lonely here, too. But better this way.


...a rainbow, no less a double is something that I NEVER see at Christmas. Thanks for the present.


Your first photo almost looks like Scotland! We often have multiple rainbows like that! Happy Christmas!

My Corner of the World

Merry Christmas, Sallie, to you and yours. What pretty baubles you captured that celebrate the season and coming New Year. Don't know if it snowed in your area yesterday but winter white has now been mixed in with the damp and gray. :))

Rainbows and birds is a perfect combination! Happy holidays! Thank you for all your wonderful comments this year. They are always appreciated.

Linda Walcroft

Yes, I will have birds at least. Best wishes for a pleasant Christmas.


Sallie - everything seems to be different this year. Anyway, I think looking for hope wherever we can find it is critical to our mental and physical well-being. And birds are a good place to start! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday, and Merry Christmas!

Sandy Lee Carlson

Merry Christmas, Sallie! Love the birds and the decorations and the outlook! Happy New Year!
