Triumph and a fond fare well

Where has the time gone?  Not that long ago, I was wondering if I could keep up with the challenge of posting a photo every day in November.  It was one of my very first challenges, along with Blogging101.  Well, the time has flown.  I have posted a post every day, enjoyed every minute, met some great people, been inspired by some wonderful photography and have given myself a proverbial “kick up the bum” to stop procrastinating and to start doing.  So a huge thanks to Photo101 and Blogging U, along with all my new friends.  I shall keep following you and look forward to seeing where this takes us all.

One of my early posts was about my lovely spaniel Flynn who I lost recently.  Looking through my photos, I came across this one, taken one Christmas after he had spent a very happy few minutes “opening his pressies”.. Not easy when you have fur and claws rather than fingers..especially as I never spared the sellotape!  I think the look on his face was one of Triumph..and the chew bone was thoroughly enjoyed.

Treasure

The first really sharp frost of winter this morning reminded me that there are a few months of cold wet weather to come.  One the the greatest treasures for me after the bleak Winter days is to see the first snowdrops of the year.  They are such an affirmation of life and are often overlooked.  So for this photo, I gave them pride of place.
