This is the view from my back door, from my kitchen window.
The Sugarloaf.
Each day bringing another sky, another wonder to fill my heart. So many days spent here at this window, on this doorstep. In summer, a sunny corner of scented flowers, creeping green. Generous lush rushes lean and sway and whisper. In autumn late blooming roses fill the evening with perfume, which greets us like a friendly melancholy ghost, wrapping around us, seducing us, inviting us to stay awhile. In winter, a sudden gift of light to gladden your heart. A heron against a stark winter sky. And in spring the birds return. Along with the green.
And you love this place. It is filled with such ghosts and echoes of other lives. The garden breathes the faint memory of long-ago children. A lingering sensation of hidden joy.
Come follow us. Share our blessings.
One year.

Hi, Ciara

i'm so glad to have found your blog, though now that you've completed the year, there will be no new surprises. But i will link it to my blog, for your photos are wonderful to view again and again.

Audrey Hepburn is my favorite actress and pretty face on any screen any day. Art and photography are also interests and foreign places. Someday when i go back to Fiji, with a digital camera this time, i'll do what you've done...just a year of photos of Taveuni, village life, kids and tropical scenics.

Thank you for sharing. i share at
