Happy New Year 2015 Calendar

Hello all! Yes, I am still here and after two months thought it was time to dust off the cobwebs on the blog and make an appearance.

The run up to Christmas was taken up with knitting, crochet and sewing Christmas presents, which seemed to have taken up all my time. This meant that the garden, photography and consequently the Hurtled to 60 blog took a back seat.

I was spurred into action this morning when Dave Marsden’s latest post on his blog The Anxious Gardener popped into my inbox. Like a domino effect, he was spurred on by Christina’s blog My Hesperides Garden.

What better opening to 2015 than to show you all the calendar I made for my friends as Christmas presents. I have done this in the past and hadn’t realised that they had come to expect one. I didn’t make a 2014 calendar and a few friends expressed their disappointment so I rectified it for 2015.

As Dave remarked, it is time consuming choosing, and uploading to the online reproduction website, an appropriate photo for each month and whilst it’s satisfying to see the finished article, I always find some fault and wish I had done something slightly different.

Sending you all best wishes for a happy and healthy 2015 and thank you all for reading my blog in the past years and I hope you continue to follow it.

  1. The calendar is a great idea, I had one as a Christmas present from Youngest Daughter, full of twelve carefully chosen pictures she’d downloaded from my blog. 😀

  3. Smashing selection Ronnie. I didn’t do a calendar last year either and was a little surprised when people started to ask where their’s was. It is a little disappointing when a shot I’ve selected doesn’t quite match my expectations when printed. Looks fine on screen but …. Dave

    1. I had the same problem but mainly because I left it to the last minute. I think during this year I will save a few special photos into a separate folder with a view to a 2016 calendar.
