Wintery Shots

 These trees are beautiful in Spring and Summer.  Leaves fall in Autumn.  And in Winter they look like this.
 Still beautiful but with a sharp harsh coldness.

The Garden On Sunday

 I am loving my new camera!
 The garden has changed a lot in the last year.  Even a few months ago it looked completely different.
My poor blog is starting to get neglected again.

I need to think of some weekly subjects to blog about (Wordless Wednesday.... etc)

What do you think?  Let the suggestions begin...

Yesterday

 We got in the car.
 Grabbed a few things from Waitrose.
 Took a self portrait wearing my other glasses.
 Looked at the Christmas decorations in a garden center.

 Finished the new storage drawers for my desk.
Ceramic angel from Vernazza in Italy. I think she needs a nice vintage looking frame around her - just to make her presence felt a bit more.

Rome - the last day

 After climbing down from the dome, we strolled around.




 We went to Piazza Navona and had a gelato



 Going back to our hotel I noticed this cool road sign!
 Good bye Rome.  We were leaving the next morning....

Rome Day 1 Part 2

 Bad photographs. I think the peak on my hat was stopping the flash from working properly.
 Trying to lighten these in Photoshop - a job for the weekend.
