That's My World Tuesday: January 2010 to January 2011

For the first My World post of the new year, I decided I would pick one shot from each month in 2010 and end with a New Year's Day shot for 2011.

The first shot was taken on January 6, 2010 during a walk at Shelley Lake which is near my house in the triangle area of the NC Piedmont. The triangle area includes Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and the Research Triangle Park as well as Cary, Apex and other small towns.
The second shot is of a blue jay on my deck wall on February 13, 2010. I selected these shots fast out of ones I haven't posted on my blog before, although I've posted some similar ones.
The third shot is of one of my redbud trees and was taken on March 24, 2010. The fourth shot which is below was taken on April the 8, 2010 at the NC botanical garden in Chapel Hill, NC.

The fifth shot was taken on May 9, 2010 at the NC Museum of Art in Raleigh NC.

By New Year's day the snow had melted as we warmed up considerably and it's raining at the moment. I took the shot of the cardinals and sparrow on my deck wall on January 1, 2011. The ligustrum is an evergreen and provides green in the winter unless it's covered in snow. That varies a lot from winter to winter here. Some winters we get a fair amount of snow others barely any. It's pretty rare for our snow to last very long although some years we do have colder winters than other years.

I like this concept of looking back post for the new year. I enjoyed my visits here last year and will continue to do so this year.

Happy and healthy New Year.

My world this week is at the blogger site.

Lovely review, Carver. I'm pleased that a carolina wren made the "top 12"

What a brilliant idea, Carver, to review each month of the year. Also, such a variety of subjects. Each month has a different theme. Thanks for sharing this beautiful part of the world. :)
