  1. Happy new year Polly!
    Is this your house? My God it looks like a dream place in the nature, I love your pictures, they are so natural and make me want to walk in the country and breath good air :) Homemade chutney and bread... ooh sounds like heaven!
    My best wishes to you and D!

  2. Happy New Year Anabelle and everyone :)

    Yes some of the pictures are our house/garden some just around and about. It's funny looking back on the year how full of nature our lives have become.

  3. These are great shots, making me excited for the year ahead and a bit of spring in the air!

  4. So much goodness in those photos - what a great wrap up of your year!
