Waterford, southeast Ireland. 2 January 2021
Here we are into the New Year, 2021. The Roman god, Janus, was generally depicted as being two-headed or two-faced, one looking forward and the other backward. I suppose we all look forward and hope that the coming year will be better than the last and, given the track record of 2020, I think there is a good chance that may well be the case. A Happy New Year and Best Wishes to all who have come to read here.
Over the Christmas period I have been looking back at photographs of the garden taken in the last year and thought it would be a good idea to use them to review the year. The exercise brought home to me just how many photographs I take – for some months, as many as an album a day. The result was that I had far more photographs than I needed and had to make choices. I generally err on the side of using far more photographs that is really necessary but I enjoy taking photographs of the garden and the plants as much as I enjoy the gardening. The selection is simply those photographs which appealed to me as I went through the albums of the past year.
I hope you enjoy the first six months of the year, a slideshow for each month, and I’ll put a similar post together for the second six months next Saturday.
I’m sharing this blog with a group of fellow bloggers who contribute to a “Six on Saturday” theme which is hosted by “The Propagator” on his blog site. To read more contributions to the Six on Saturday theme go to The Propagator’s entry for today, scroll down to the comments and you will find other bloggers have posted links to their Saturday entries there. Lots to read!
