Happy New Year


Today the City Daily Photo bloggers are selecting their best picture for 2008. From my perspective 2008 has not been a good photographic year, too busy working. However, I think this photo of my front garden taken on Anzac Day in April is good one and a nice match with the summer photo at the back of the house in my last post.

Notice the pine cones littering the path -- I just swept them up yesterday! So this brings to mind a few New Year Resolutions:

1. Clean up Autumn well before Summer
2. Take more photos of my lovely garden
3. Try to take life a little slower in 2009 and savour the ride -- mmm with recession looming the slow bit might be easy and the ride rough but that's the fun of each New Year. I hope you all have a good one.

I am still on vacation from this blog for a while longer but have begun posting my recent seaside and country tour on my Sweet Wayfaring blog, please stop by and enjoy the holiday with me!

I was too relaxed on holiday to register for the Theme Day but to see the others who were not tardy like me Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

  1. Goodo ...

    Such a beautiful house and garden, my friend. I would love to linger longer with you as the guide.

    Don't be too hasty to clean up a season. One of my many loves is detritus ...

    Now over to SW to see what you have been up to.

  3. I love garden photos! They say so much about a person and their area. Thank you for the ANZAC Day photo. Lest we forget.
