The last few years I’ve made a calendar from photos taken through the year, to furnish homemade gifts to my close family. My brother clearly values this gift, and has it on proud display in his downstairs lavatory! This year, the power of blogging enables me to display such quality gifts to so many more people – a good two or three, at least.
The Inelegant Gardener (HappyMouffetard) is responsible for some of these, but I can’t remember which – probably some of the ones of flowers.
Cover image – it’s an amaryllis.
January – a brass marmot in the mountains above Obergurgl
February – a dwarf iris
March – a rice paper butterfly (at Chester Zoo)
April – more snowy mountains, this time Orelle in France
May – spring greenery in North Wales
June – calendula
July – Blea Tarn, above Great Langdale
August – the Japanese garden at Tatton Park
September – autumn colours in North Wales
October – jack o’lantern by HappyMouffetard, photography by me
November – fireworks in Val Thorens (cheating, because this was April)
December – frosted nigella seed head
Thank you for visiting the blog in the few short months since I started writing it, it’s been great fun and I’ve enjoyed reading your comments.
Happy New Year to you all!
