The photo challenge this week gives an opportunity to air some pictures that you haven’t seen before, and also to hilight some that are my favourites. I’ll be repeating the exercise at Just Snaps, but no repeats of photographs. There will also be a resume of the tree over here when I can get it all together! So, here is a little collection.

The New Year began with friends, a good way to start January
February brought us snow. I don’t like snow….
March saw us visiting Wales. I was teaching at Tredegar House
In April we celebrated someone’s special birthday. This was just one course. The rest were equally delicious. Happy Birthday J
May was the month our grandson discovered that he LOVES hot chocolate! It has become a regular treat.
In June we celebrated the Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II. Once again with friends, and also with a lighted beacon.
July brought us the first of the garden fruits. Yellow raspberries are delicious raw, but also make a lovely jam.
In August someone became 5!
It wasn’t us jetting off to places far away, but September did bring us some blue skies and a relief from the rain that seems to have been here since drought was declared in April.
October, and autumn is in full swing. Still flowers in the garden. Such a joy as the days become shorter.
This was probably the hardest month of the year. Much of the month was spent sorting through the things of a much loved relative. So many memories, I’ll be writing more about these in 2013
I’m so thankful that I have been able to spend 2012 with those that I love, and also make the most of being able to pass on my skills to students worldwide.
Just a few glimpses. I had far too many pictures from which to choose. I hope your 2012 was a happy one, and that you will look back without regret. You can find full details of the challenge here where there are also lots more entries. I hope you will join it too.
