Happy New Year to you all!!

Have you made your New Years Resolutions yet???? Well one I know I will keep is my Blog! What an amazing community there is to be found out there in blog land. It gives you the opportunity to pop in and visit anyone, see what there up to, what there doing and can inspire you to take on new challenges!!

I have tried candle making, soap making, beading in cross stitch, knitting with wire and beads and I don't intend to stop there!

Now the BIG challenge is this photo a day!!! Having looked round a lot of blogs who do this, they seem to go out and take pics of there local community, buildings and such like. Well the problem I have, is there are only so many 'cow' pictures people can look at!!!!! Being as rural as I am, and enjoying it, this is going to be one massive challenge! So be prepared for the odd, the obscure and alot of my garden!!!!!! I hope it will bring out the creative in me, Oh I know I can sew, cook garden, etc, that has always come relatively easily, I realise I need to think outside the box. Leonie at Country Garden posted a picture of 'barbed wire' on the Potting Shed forum. Don't get me wrong, it was a beautiful picture but for goodness sake, what was it, that even made her think of taking it!!! So now you see the challenge I have!!!

Pips at the ready? no I haven't done mine yet, either!!! But I will!!!

How great to find colour in the middle of winter!
Its getting dark here so I am thinking about photo number 2 already!!

Love the viburnum pic. Although one or other of my blogs usually has a photo of some kind I reckon it's quite a task you've got to find something different every day. I still haven't decided on my pip; had wondered about ginger too!; shall just have to see what I can lay my hands on. Take care

What lovely blossom..!
I though I was doing well having pansies in bloom. But then we are usually under several cms of snow..!

I must look out for the accidental pip to present itself to me. I am "at the ready". Thanks for the challenge.
