Favourite photo(s) from 2021..

 

Happy happy New Year! As is the custom the new year theme for CDP'ers around the world is a favourite photo from the previous year. I never find it easy to pick just one so here a mixture of seasonal shots that appealed to me. The last four months have not been easy both in a personal and family way, one thing is certain, we should make the most of every precious moment. I loved the whimsy of the first two shots, bees and butterflies enjoying a spring feast..

After a Christmas day top temperature of 43C preceded and followed by equally blistering weather...

... I am looking forward to winter days such as the two below..

Never can resist a lighthouse shot :) 

Night views overlooking the city from Kings Park..

And as always I am delighted and never take for granted that I can step out of my back door to be greeted by the many fabulous birds that visit my garden like the cheeky Kookaburra here :) I am finding it difficult to get back into the daily posting routine so my plan is to start off slowly with Monday Murals and Weekend/Street Reflections and hopefully build up to speed again. Once again thank you for the kind messages and hopefully a wee bit of patience until I get my act together :) Take care and stay safe..
