2018 IN REVIEW

Last Year I initially forgot to do a yearly
review where I would select one post from
 each month.  This year I did remember 
that so here we go with one post from each
month starting of course with January.

This January post was called 
"DREAMING OF
SPRING"


In February I got out my violet pieces
of bone china to enjoy and this post
was called 
"BRINGING OUT THE VIOLETS":



Of course in March the Easter and spring
decorating moved front and center but one
of the posts that caught my eye here was 
one about "JANE AUSTEN'S IRISH PASSION":



Moving on to April I chose this post
from April 14, 2018:  DAFFODILS



Just looking at that encourages me -
I forgot we can have daffodils in April 
here in Missouri.

And now on to May where I
took these photos on a 
"SATURDAY IN THE GARDEN":



You know I actually find this shocking that we
had these flowers in May.  I guess I'm still
remembering Colorado and the almost non 
existent spring. 
 This post I chose for June was about our
visit to The Dickey House Bed and Breakfast
in June. This was part of celebrating our
 50th wedding Anniversary 
which was May 31, 2018:



By July our garden was in bloom and
this post was about "CELEBRATING
 GEORGE AND MARTHA WASHINGTON"
 for the 4th:



In August I became acquainted with
Zinnias and saw that they can survive the
terrible heat in a Missouri Summer.  We
really had little rain all summer.

"ZINNIAS'S TAKE THE HEAT":



September:  "A FALL TEA IN THE GARDEN":



October:
 "ON A WARM DAY BEYOND SUMMER":



November:  "CHRISTMAS STARTS
AT THE KITCHEN TABLE" with
Friendly Village transferware:



and one last post in this review for
December of 2018 sharing 
"EPHEMERA ENDEAVORS":



Thanks for making it this far
 down in this posting!
