End of year Reflections

I want to express my thanks and appreciations to all those who have followed, liked  and commented on my blogging efforts this year. It has been an amazing learning experience for me….an ongoing one I might add. I have learnt so much about life in other places, people’s   incredible capacity to be creative beings and the myriad of ways that this can be expressed.

I feel like I know a few of you a little bit through your photos and writings. I have been blown away by people’s talents, creativity, empathy and generosity both in the sharing of knowledge and the sharing of their personal experience and passions.

In the bigger picture it fills me with optimism for our future when I explore other’s blogs, read freshly pressed and appreciate the incredible images that grace my screen on a regular basis from all over the planet… thank you  again and I look forward to the coming new year with anticipation and joy

From around my garden

The seasons have changed…. and are being very changable down this way…cold, cold then warm, then Hot! And who knows what tomorrow may bring : )
I could cruise the weather sites, instead I’ll wake in  the morn  and see for myself….

Each morning I wake and wander outside full of wonder and appreciation for the bounty and beauty in my garden.
