Blog Birthdays, Looking Back, and The Colours of Nature.

A couple of days ago I was looking back through files and realised that on the 7th January 2011 this blog was one year old. It seemed fitting that I had just given the place a bit of a makeover! I remember when I began it, I wasn't at all sure of where it would go? I just knew that I needed a place where I was free to post my photo's, memories and my thoughts.

So that is what happened! and my memories surfaced. . .
n A Time Machine to the Past I remember running in the dark, 1972, & believing I could fly!
In A Photo and Memory it Contained I was whisked back in time by a photo.
In Dogs have Aha Moments too - I remembered my old dog Harvey and a special moment.
and then in Explosive Memories I laughed once again at this particular memory!

And my photos captured beautiful moments. . .
- Like - Watching the day leave.
- And Spring Arriving in My Garden.
- Like the Lilacs in my garden.

And then there were the thoughts. . .
- Natural Connections - where I talk about my connection to Nature.
and Here before we came - things we found in our garden and kept.

Then for the last few months this blog has been given over to I Saw Sunday, where each week I talk about or post photos of things that I've observed and that stuck out for me in the week gone by. So without further ado, lets see what I noticed this week.

The snow has gone, relieving the buddha in my garden of his snowy overcoat.
A walk around the village revealed a pallette of greys and greens.And lots of wonderful natural textures.And bursts of colour that almost took my breath away!Happy 1st Birthday to The Streaming Now!

Thanks to all of you who have visited this blog over the past year!

Happy 1st Birthday! I can't believe it's been that long for this one (one of many!) of your blogs. I remember all the moments you mentioned and I loved the photo's, especially the budhas little friend :o)

Elizabeth said...

Happy Birthday. I like periodically going back and reading random posts on my blog. Your pics are wonderful, and I especially like the rough viney one for some reason. Someday...I have something to look forward to,

Elizabeth

Hi Deborah,

Thanks for the blog birthday wishes. :-) I actually think that this is one of my youngest blogs? (I will have to check if I just made that up!)

Good to see you here. x

Good to see you Elizabeth and I am glad you are getting the knack of your new camera.

It has been great to look back over the blog, it helps to remember the timing of things. I can check when the lilac blooms in my garden, when the first signs of spring appears by searching back through the entries, an unexpected but very welcome bonus to blogging!

Congratulations on blogging for a full year, Susannah.

I've really enjoyed visiting and reading your posts.

Congratulations on this milestone! I was just thinking the other day how blogs are like online diaries/time capsules, and well worth the effort regardless of how widely read.

Gorgeous photos as usual! Looking forward to another year of beauty and insights :)

Susannah said...

Thanks very much Paul, I really appreciate you taking the time to visit. It is always good to see you. :-)

Susannah said...

Thanks Tamara. :-)

Yes I agree that it is worth the effort regardless of how many people rad it, the actual act of formulating your thoughts and putting them down and seeing them printed is satisfying in itself and alwways interesting to look back on.

And of course you meet a lot of great people through blogging that you would never have met otherwise and I am so greatful for that. ;-)

Happy birthday. I loved the funny little frog perched beside Budha! Is that your prince charming by any chance......LOL. The photos are beautiful. Everything here is white. Lovely to see the bursts of colour.

Susannah said...

Hi Ann, it is good to see you. :-)

Hmmm, I've never actually tried kissing that frog....yet! lol

Thanks for dropping in.

Jennifer said...

Wow, how the time passes! Happy birthday! Wonderful photos - you're right, the colours and textures are simply gorgeous.

Susannah said...

Hi Jennifer, yes doesn't time fly!

I only happened to notice as I was going through files. I know this is one of my newest blogs, I wonder how long the others have been going?

Good to see you. x
