My 2011 knitting summary will come later. In the meantime, here are twelve photos from 2011:
Last year I took part, for the first half of the year, in 25of2011, the idea being to take a themed photo each week. One of the first photos I took was titled “This is Me!” for which I stretched the theme a little and also allows you to see a bit of the snowy garden.
Murphy makes his first appearance of the year hiding away from the snow and cold. Will it be his last appearance?
After an exceedingly snowy winter, I was glad when spring flowers appeared at the end of March.
April bought more Spring flowers, including cherry tree blossom at Longwood Gardens
May is the beginning of fiber festival season with Maryland Sheep and Wool. As a keen and eager spinner, I am more than ever interested in the animals whose product I love so much.
I travelled a lot in June. First to England and then to Wilmington VT. I loved the Green Mountain State. Visiting and falling in love with VT, made really devastating when the flooding happened after Hurricane Irene.
I have a large collection of Daylilies in my garden. This was there month. Not sure if they usually flower in July. 2011 was a strange year for gardening.
I went home to England again to help Dad pack. He has moved nearer, like right next door, to my brother. This was the last time I’ll visit my childhood home. I took lots of pictures and in some I almost expect Mum to appear around the corner. This was one of her favorite spots, looking at the garden while washing up:
I started a new job and one weekend explored Nockamixon State Park. It has lots of water:
Well, there had to be one fiber related photograph. It seems that I only took photos of spinning in October.
And here is Murphy again:
Spending some time with family in England. My Dad and brother now live in St Albans so I had an afternoon of photography of St Albans Cathedral:

I haven’t really done this kind of photo before, so once again I had to pull out my camera’s instruction manual and find out how to do it. Then one morning waking up at 5 am I played with fire.
And phew, I made it halfway!

Mum grew lots of cacti. It was an amazing but dangerous collection. This one was particularly spiky and sat near a light switch.

It was hard to chose one passion, but to keep it simple I needed to do just that. One thing I have learned so far is that pictures are better if they are not too busy. So what is my passion? I love gardening, fiber arts, music, science…oh and Murphy:

Of course this week I was hardly home and also had very few flowers out. It has been a strange spring with large gaps between flowering. The bugle weed above is saying “mow the lawn”

Most of my pictures have minimal processing, so this was not a new idea for me. Harder than I expected though.
