Another New Year! While the new year may be exciting and full of potential – it is not a time of year that I am particularly fond of … but as I get older – I am learning to appreciate it.

This year I am NOT full of Christmas cheer and spirit. To-day I bought and wrote my Christmas cards – and as I was writing them – I thought the designs I had chosen were rubbish. (We don’t have many shopping choices locally).
Why did I not think about Christmas a month ago – and make my own cards from one of my designs – I say it every year and never give myself enough time ….. bah humbug!
Clearing up to-day, and I found some bulbs that I had forgotten to plant last month. As to-day was lovely, I popped them into the flower bed.
The large one is Allium – Mount Everest, and the smaller ones are Nectaroscordum (Siculum Honey Lily).
It is very difficult to photograph your own hands holding bulbs, when you have short arms.
High Tide on a beautiful December afternoon.
I cannot believe that it will be December to-morrow. A glorious day today – just perfect for a walk along the beach. I am amazed that no one else was there, but not complaining.
