The Best of the Rest 2013

Wow! 2013 is coming to a close, and it is time for this year's 'The Best of the Rest' feature. These are photos taken through the year that for various reasons did not make it onto my blog the first time around, but, nevertheless, deserve a look. I always enjoy going through the THOUSANDS of photos trying to choose appropriate selections for each month, but it is a time consuming task! In the end, the shots are are a good review of the year.

So, drum roll, please! Here they are:

January:Autumn the cat came to us in October, 2012. She disappeared without a trace only a couple months after I took this photo. Although she was with us only a few months, she left us with lasting memories. We still miss her. If you love cats, or if you hate cats, and if you haven't already done so, you should read my previous post A Cat Tale.

February:Clockwise from top left: Cheery daffodil; Leucojum aestivum (Summer snowflake); Trollius; Hellebore.

March:Early spring in the woodland garden

Deodar cedar 'Feelin' Blue' is one of my favorites, and I have featured it in many of my blog posts. One more time won't hurt!

April:Looking like a hairy newborn alien, an Autumn Fern frond unfurls.

This old urn belonged to my grandparents.

July:

August:Red banana plant in the front garden; everything has a golden glow in August.

September:Clockwise from top left: Variegated pittisporum and wood aster; Coneflower; Plectranthus; Rosa mutabilis.

October:Clockwise from upper left: Entrance to lower woodland garden; Ipomoea fistulosa (Bush morning-glory); One of several birdhouse in the front garden; Little Heartleaf ginger.

November:

December:Clockwise from top: Edgeworthia crysanthia buds are swelling; Collard greens are Lou's favorite; these were just picked from our garden; Nandina berries.

I hope you enjoyed the photos! Did you have a favorite month? Best wishes to everyone for a very Happy New Year!  Deb
