Here is a little late greeting from me to all forumists! I think you understand what it says ;)

May 2012 be a good year for the germination of seeds and a floriferous one for all of you.

Hope the day has gone well/is going well for all- however you are spending it! I've had wildly varied holidays in the past- time with family, away from family with friends, home alone with music and food, Christmas Day night out at a nightclub(disco) and various combinations of those!

Maggi-- love that tree!Faith and Saori- our snow has been on the ground - at least part of it- since early November, and is unlikely to disappear any time soon- but it really depends on where-- it is bare and has been mostly, around spruce trees, and those bare patches extend with this warm weather; some kinds of woods have only an inch or two of snow, but other parts of the woods, and open places have from several inches to a foot or more of snow-- that is getting lower as it settles in this warm weather ( days up to 5 or 6C for a few days, and the whole week until friday above freezing days); around our paths and driveways where snow has been shovelled, it is up to several feet deep..... in places that have flat/smooth ground and are in shade (describes almost all of our yard in winter) the snow falls deep and lasts long... (below, a view across the neighbours', yesterday, Christmas Eve)..Trond, nice view- is that from your house/mountain house?

Hi Cohan, it is from my mountain cabin. The pic is from last winter as we haven't been there this season and it isn't much snow so far either.

Got home tonight and here it is +11C (no snow of course). Have to take a stroll around the house tomorrow to see if the hurricane damaged anything here. The worst weather hit further north last night. A new storm is brewing and will hit the coast this night.

Hope you don't see much of the storm... our weather has been quite tame, lately, besides being warm, we have not had much snow in the last couple of weeks, and rain forecast several times has not appeared, thankfully-- we don't need a coating of ice on top of the snow! Overall, though, winter is not a time for violent weather here-- it can be brutally cold, but not violent...

And a Happy New Year to all of you, from the George Family here in Central Massachusetts. It's been a very good year for us, and we are looking forward to a better and more floriferous year in 2012. I wish I had something beautiful to share with you all, but I'm not good at these things at all, so just use your imaginations.

I've really enjoyed being President of NARGS so far, and I'm confident that my insanity will last for another year or so, and keep me focused on the various tasks we've got ahead of us. Keep contributing to the Forum, and let me know what changes you'd like to see on the website, as a redo is the primary job of 2012.
