Roses blooming in the snow
Christmas is just about upon us, so I want to wish each and every one of you a special Christmas, and a very Happy New Year.
Boats on the River Stour at Sandwich
It only seems a few weeks since last Christmas, a lot has happened since this time last year. My daughter is 8,000 miles away in Bejing, we miss her dreadfully but she will be with us for next Christmas, and I will be joining her in Bejing for the holiday of a lifetime in April, which will be wonderful – imagine the hugs when I get there
The Library garden in the snow
Since my last blog I have had some sunshine, and thanks to those of you who left me such lovely comments, they mean the world to me! Much to my surprise I had two of my photos included in the calendar which came free with our local paper – my friend at work spotted them, I knew nothing about it! I will show you the photos next time as I don’t have time to trawl through all my pics just now, but if you look on the left of this page you will see a photo of some blossom, that is one of the ones included in the Calendar. Spurred on by this I submitted two snow pictures to the paper, both of which made the following weeks edition,and I was contacted by the chief reporter of the paper who asked if she could come and interview me about my photography, I was truly amazed!! The interview was last week, it was good fun, and for a change I had my photo taken…not too sure about that one, but the photographer was just great, he had a look at some of my photos and gave me some really good hints and a lot of encouragement. The piece is going to be in the paper the first week of the New Year, I am going to let my work colleagues read it first, so they can have the first laugh
The photos included in this blog are just ones that I have taken over the last few weeks, I hope you enjoy looking at them, and once again I wish each and every one of you a Very Merry Christmas xxxxxx
I spent a very happy lunch hour in this garden, I was the only one there….
…..apart from the horse sculpture that is!
Beautiful berries peeping through the snow
And finally the view from the gazebo
