Very few of my images where planned in advance. The food shots, yes, but the rest was just life as it was during 2014. They are a snapshot of my life. Some days I just quickly took an image on my way home from work, but I guess even this tells something about those days. I am not sure if I can stop now the 365 is done. I am still taking photos, just in case I do a second 365!
In keeping with a fresh start for 2015 I have updated my blog to a brighter fresher look. Same layout just a new colour scheme. What do you think?
And no this pic wasn't taken on my way home from work!

Below is another look at that native Australian Christmas tree (Nuytsia floribunda), and a close up below..... it is a magnificent splash of yellow this time of year.
This last 4 months has been a difficult one for our family loosing two parents. As the sun set on 2014 and we prepared for the funeral of my dear mother-in-law who passed away peacefully on 26 December, I am grateful for the special joys of our children and grandchildren, and look forward to all that 2015 may bring.
As Gayle at Behind the Garden Gate in per blog post "Piecework Quilt" says, life is like a patchwork quilt with light and dark colours. As I look back over 2014 I know this to be true. You can read Gayle's beautiful post by clicking here - Behind the Garden Gate-Piecework Quilt
