The Ice Gardens of New Year’s Eve 12/31/14

“Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” ~ Oprah Winfrey
12:31:14 gf sig Flashback Monday, December 31, 2012 – This is my pick photo for today and it ends the Walk In Beauty Project for 2012. I really love the colors here of the Oregon grape with the snowflakes. I wish everyone a Happy New Year and much love 🙂
December 31, 2012 sigFlashback Tuesday, December 31, 2013 – This is my pick photo for today, the last day of the year, and it stars the opened pod of my yucca plant I hope that those of you who have followed along have enjoyed the sharing of the small beauties in my environment and world during 2013 and I hope that 2014 brings you all much love, joy, good health and creativity!
December 31, 2013 sigWednesday, December 31, 2014 –  It is almost 2015 and today I focused on the lovely ice that is on a culinary sage  plant that I gave to one of my neighbors.  The little bird at the top of the page is a goldfinch.  The goldfinches (along with other types of birds) enjoy the many plants that I have planted in and around my yard and garden.  January 4, 2015 will be the anniversary of this daily photo project that I started on Facebook and call “Walk In Beauty”. Last year I decided to use this blog to share the pick photo from each day of 2012 and 2013, along with selected photos from that day of 2014.  I haven’t decided yet what will happen beginning on January 4th, 2015.  At this moment in time it is a Mystery and with Grace I will be able to get to the 4th and not miss a day.  So far I have been successful  in taking and sharing at least one photo for each since January 4th of 2012.
