Beautiful pics, with beautiful words.
Thank you, Eleazar 🙂
Beautiful photos Tish. And a great antidote!
Glad to hear they worked, antidote-wise 🙂
Flowers and music might yet save the world.
That’s a very happy thought, Marilyn.
And much love right back at you, Tish. Thanks for all the beauty your share with us during the year.
And for all you share with us, Janet. I think in our little corner of ‘the www’ we all do a good job of sharing.
Thanks, GC. Have a great Christmas, you and yours.
Beauty is a source of spiritual healing. Love is the fruit of beauty. Beauty and humility go together.
Your flowers and their tiny creatures are a treasure. I am grateful for your act of love in posting the photos-Thank you, Tish.
Angel in the dust
Thank you for your thoughtful and kindly words.
Lovely. Flowers do seem to bring a touch of joy. The colors always make me happy.
Yes that’s what I thought too, Marie, some bursts of bright colours are called for.
Lovely images. Take the opportunity to wish a great Christmas.
Festive greetings to you too, Pete.
Lovely pictures 🙂
Yes, it is! Thanks for the joy, Tish. 🙂 Wishing you and your intrepid man the finest of Christmases and peace in the New Year.
And the same to you, my dear, with reindeer bells and lots of cheery yo-ho-hoing.
What a great collection of critters. I hope you have a superb Christmas and even superber 2017. I’m looking forward to living it with you.
Well that works both ways, lovely Meg. And I forgot to say the other day, yes, Memoir Monday is damn fine idea. Go for it! Also have a great Polish Christmas.
What a lovely bright, cheery set of images, Tish…. Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas, and a great 2017
I very nearly included a faded poppy for you, Sue. I’ll save it for another time perhaps. Wishing you the very best for Christmas and beyond. I’ve so enjoyed are quick chats this year 🙂
Beautiful. Nature really does have healing power. Wishing you a happy holiday season this year!
And all festive greetings to you, Susan.
I love sharing your Wenlock treasures and look forward to more next year. Meanwhile happy winter solstice – spring is on her way…..!!!
Happy solstice to you too, Jude. Likewise, I’m looking forward to more of your Cornish vistas. And yes, spring may be here sooner than we expect 🙂
Gorgeous Tish, thank you!
You’re most welcome, Gilly
These are a beautiful antidote for all that is wrong in the world. Thank you.
Amazing and beautiful garden! Looks like the year 2016 was very plentiful. Thanks for sharing.
Cheers, Dr. Y. Wishing you all the best for 2017.
I love the hoverfly. Have not encountered this species at the Ark’s spot. And a beautiful photograph as well.
Well done you!
Hello again, Ark. I’m supposed to be hoovering but would rather talk hoverflies with you. Glad you like the pix – courtesy of my dinky little Canon ixus 🙂
And I should be inspecting the minor repair I recently did on the pond/pool, but to strip down and work in this heat….phew .. no thanks.
Mad Dogs etc …
Noel Coward anyone?
Your hoverfly could be this …
… clearly is a female and so this should be Syrphus ribesii.
Don’t say I never do anything for you!
Oops… scroll down to Wasp like hoverflies.
Interesting coverage re female hoverfly thighs! Thanks for the v. interesting link, Ark. And I still haven’t hoovered!
Hoover, Hover … just semantics, right?
Thank you for sharing the beauty of your garden, Tish!
Happy 2017! 🙂
And a very happy and creative year ahead to you too, Amy.
Just what the doctor ordered, Tish. I was just in my yard, overlooking the bare beds, plants, and rosebushes. Even though the worst of winter lies ahead, I can’t help but search the soil for hints of spring. We gardeners are an optimistic lot. 🙂
Optimism and gardening – It goes with the territory, doesn’t it? Do pessimists even attempt to garden, I wonder. There are already signs of spring in the UK – daffodil tips just showing, early rhododendrons already flowering in Wales in sheltered spots. Who knows what will happen next though…
Natural beauty is always a great antidote to the less beautiful things we have to witness around us. Gorgeous shots, Tish!
Thank you, Helen. I seem to need a lot of antidotes these days.
Me too, Tish, lots of it.
