Artist's Notes for Each Month's Image:
JANUARY: Noodles for good luck in the New Year! Toshikoshi Soba. Depending on where you go in Japan, the noodles are long, symbolizing a long life. So by eating the noodles, it represents your wish for a continued long life in the next year as well.
FEBRUARY: Inseparable companions. Lovebirds snuggle on a shared branch.
MARCH: I love the graphic nature of a shopping basket. Part of the fun of travel is going into new markets and seeing all the wonderful and strange things they have!
APRIL: April showers create delight for all the senses.
MAY: Lovely weather for a bicycle ride through the Cotswolds in England. Hedgerows teeming with life in the spring and summer.
JUNE: The netting that holds a bag of oranges is so wonderfully graphic and mesmerizing. Orange you glad you're reading these page notes?
JULY: Spacious skies, amber waves of grain, and purple mountains majesty. America the beautiful indeed! Happy Independence Day!
AUGUST: As summer draws to a dreamy end, double espresso shots give us a jumpstart. Espresso should be "Black as the devil, hot as hell, pure as an angel, sweet as love." -Charles Maurice de Talleyrand
SEPTEMBER: International Crab Fest Day, a delicious September 14 holiday! Crab in the fall is a wonderful treat! The primary season for all crab species is late September to January, when they are often at their largest and populations are highest after spawning.
OCTOBER: Camping and telling spooky ghost stories around the fire make for a great October.
NOVEMBER: Amaryllis provide wonderful indoor blooms this time of year. My favorites are the white ones. Ahhhhh, that beautiful floral bouquet!
DECEMBER: December is for honoring traditions new and old. Linnea created this image in 1993 and it's one of my favorites so I thought we'd put it here for another spin around the sun.
