2011 Photo Round Up

Filed under: Personal, Photo — Tags: , , , , — Cat @ 9:26 am

My 2011 knitting summary will come later.  In the meantime, here are twelve photos from 2011:

January
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.

This is me!

February
Murphy makes his first appearance of the year hiding away from the snow and cold. Will it be his last appearance?

March
After an exceedingly snowy winter, I was glad when spring flowers appeared at the end of March.

April
April bought more Spring flowers, including cherry tree blossom at Longwood Gardens

Cherry Blossoms

May
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.

June
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.

July
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.

Orange Daylily

August
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:

September
I started a new job and one weekend explored Nockamixon State Park. It has lots of water:

Sails

October
Well, there had to be one fiber related photograph. It seems that I only took photos of spinning in October.

Three Balls of Singles BFL

November
And here is Murphy again:

December
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:
