THE CHANGING SEASONS, JANUARY 2020 – Marilyn Armstrong

The Changing Seasons, January 2020


This hasn’t been a normal January. We had no measurable snow and only 4 out of 31 days have been lower than average January temperature. Every other day was higher than average bringing this month in as the third warmest recorded.

Most of my pictures this month were birds. Without snow to make the landscape interesting, there hasn’t been much to photograph. Glad I have the birds!

At the very end, I realized my Christmas cactus is blooming again and my big purple orchid is about to bloom too.

If you would like to join in, here are the guidelines:

  • Each month, post 5-20 photos in a gallery that you feel represent your month
  • Don’t use photos from your archive. Only new shots.
  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons so that others can find them

The Changing Seasons Version 2 (Choose the format):

  • Each month, post a photo, recipe, painting, drawing, video, whatever that you feel says something about your month
  • Don’t use archive stuff. Only new material!
  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons so others can find them.

If you do a ping-back to Su Leslie’s original post, she can update it with links to all of yours.

  1. I’m always glad to see the beautiful birds you photograph Marilyn. I guess a warmer January is a mixed blessing — less miserable perhaps, but more evidence of climate change?

      1. I know it’s supposed to be a warm January (sequel to “A Warm December”?) but I’ve been cold to my bones. Guess it’s because I have less blubber on my body. Is this a cautionary tale?

        Meantime, we have about two weeks till pitchers & catchers are due to report for spring training. Will it be cold in the grapefruit and cactus leagues? Do you really care?
