Happy January!

Happy January to all my friends and readers

New Calendar picture with this
beautiful watercolour painting by Hanka Koebsch

"Kleiner Eiskönig"
"Small Kingfischer"

January I have always learned that January was named after the named after Janus, the god of beginnings and transitions in Roman mythology, however, I also heard it's named after the Latin word for door (ianua). Both fit, we go through that door into the new year. Let's hope it will be a happy one! 

The birthstone of this month is the garnet, a brownish group of silicate minerals that can be transformed into beautiful deep red gemstones. 

Enjoy this month with the beautiful watercolour painting by Hanka Koebsch. 
Isn't the little kingfisher beautiful?.
