Thanks for visiting and for all your kind messages.
I have just completed a year of blogging! Fancy that! It's gone by in a flash.
I started because I wanted to give a little bit of home to my family and friends dotted around the world, a place where they could dip in and out, see what the weather was doing over here, how the garden was changing through the seasons and what was going on in a small everyday sort of way. I also wanted to record places I had visited that I thought others might enjoy visiting, if not in person then virtually because there are some wonderful places around and sometimes people are in a fearful rush they just can't see them.
Unexpectedly, I have been given a new pair of eyes similar to when you have a baby and are totally transported forever to see the world differently through their eyes. I now keep an eye out for a good shot, a colourful something that might brighten your day, the story behind an ordinary place.
I have also been thrilled that you have been able to join me, encourage, support and entertain me with your splendid messages - all you kind bloggy writers. You are just the best. Thank you.
