Happy New Year

Thank you to all those who have read and commented on my blog during the last year. Without you it would not be what it is.

May 2019 bring you lots of joy, adventure, and friendship. May you continue to find your creativity. Thank you to all of you who have inspired me to keep blogging.

Let us hope that 2019 will bring the world to a better place. In the words of Greta Thunberg, my 2018 hero, “you are never too small to make a difference.”

Happy New Year!

Photographic Review of 2018

It is so had to pick one of two photos for 2018, so I have divided into a few categories.

Favorite new place we visited – Clare Island, way back last January.

Bog pool, Clare Island

Favorite wildlife photo, probably has to be the tiny frog in my daughter’s hand, just because it is sooo small.

Favourite bee photograph because I just love bumblebees, is this carder bee on apple blossom.

Favourite garden we visited. I have two, Belvedere walled garden here in Ireland and Picton Castle walled garden in Wales. Photograph below is from Picton Castle.


Hot reds

And finally just because I like it.

Winter solstice

Today, the 21st December is the Winter Solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere. Finally day length will start going the right way. We’ve had a grey few weeks and have not seen much sunshine. But the sun was there briefly this morning just as it rose about 9am only to be swallowed by a bank of cloud.

Wishing you all a lovely Winter Solstice
