As each year comes to a close I like to look back at my photos to remind myself of some of the best times. May in particular is often an outstanding month for me. There are some special family events to celebrate and usually the weather is warm which gives us the chance to be outside and enjoy the sunshine after a long dreary winter.
There’s something about a cold and windy December day that makes me yearn for a few rays of sunshine. I’ve been looking at summer photos today and that brief glimpse into the recent past inspired me to make photo collages for June, July and August.
The BBC has not sent Monty Don and his chums for a four month holiday as I previously thought. When Gardeners World vanished from our TV screens in November I wondered what the planners were thinking. Gardening is one of the top hobbies here in the UK and it struck me that gardeners or would be gardeners are not really catered for in the same way as armchair sports fans or would be bakers, antique collectors, interior designers or even property developers come to that.
