WELCOME!

I am going to begin 2016 with a brand new blog.  

My reason for starting anew is that it was taking too long for some to load up and make comments.  As I started it in 2008 and it was very photo heavy, I thought it kinder, and hopefully easier for all, to start 2016 with the sweep of a new broom.  

Please let me know what you think of the new background, and any constructive comments will be welcomed and considered.  I am using the largest text to make it easier for people to read. 

Posts will be on the old blog up until December 31st, 2015, but I will be keeping it open for anyone to visit, and even make a comment if you want to. 

My next entry here will be the Today's Flowers meme on January 1st, 2016.  

Here's to happy new beginnings for all of us.

  13. Good luck with your new blog. Always exciting to start something new. You have inspired me to change mine up a bit too. I'll be adding a bit more about my English heritage which up until now, it's strictly been what's happening in the garden.

  14. Congrats on the new blog... I tried doing a new blog a few years ago --and still have it, but so far, 99% of my friends still prefer to follow me on Joyful Reflections... I had been told that my posts were too long for some, so the new blog was Betsy's Photo Page... Even though I still post once a month or son on it (with just one photo), I just don't get the comments I do on the other one... SO--I am still putting my attention on Joyful Reflections --although, as you know, I haven't had much time for blogging in 2015.. Maybe I'll do better in 2016....

    We are fine--and just staying busy. I do read your posts and even though I don't comment much, I certainly enjoy them..

    Merry Christmas.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  31. Trying to get to your new blog. I am confused. Will try to fix the link. This looks like the right place, but I see I made a comment earlier. Duh!

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.
