I guess it’s required to do some type of “best of” as the New Year approaches so here’s my take on it. I thought about picking my own favorites from the year but that’s too hard – so I decided to let my Flickr friends do it for me. The following images garnered the most “favorites” during the year but not necessarily the most views. Thanks to all of the followers of my blog here on WordPress – I enjoy reading your posts and I especially enjoy your comments. Peace and Happiness in the New Year! – Chris

These are in no particular order and it’s obvious that I take a bunch of pics of cameras! Do you have a favorite? Please let me know in the comments section – thank you!
My favorite pic of me because it was taken by my lovely wife Carol.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fantastic 2019 and beyond!!! – Chris

Pirate (2002 – 2018) doing what he liked to do the most (when young) – getting himself in impossible situations in every tree in the yard.
Happy Monday – have a beautiful day! – Chris
Zoe – Our Sunroom Kitty – 2000 to 2018
Zoe was nearly 18 years old and she went missing just 2 days after we found Pirate dead.
Pirate – The King of the Neighborhood – 2003 to 2018
Sukoshi – The Soft One – 2003 to 2017
As much as Carol and I have enjoyed our different kitties over the 45 years of our marriage, with the loss of these three we have moved on from pet ownership. It’s painful to think about it but as we age it’s best for the cats and us.
Our first kitty – Avon – 1975
Our cats: Avon 1975, Tank 1975, Sony 1981, Candy 1983, Zoe 2000, Pirate 2003, Sukoshi 2003 ^.^
Thanks for stopping by. Have a beautiful SUNday!
Chris and Carol ^.^
Raindrops on leaves – most magical green – saturated colors that excite.
Crepe myrtle leaves dripping with rain.
Flowering dogwood with bursts of green and red.
A rather rare occurrence here in Northeast Florida in early June – a long steady rain. After an extremely dry late winter and spring, rain has returned in a big way. Afternoon thunderstorms fill once dry ponds and bogs and gardens brim with life and color.
Bald cypress branches hang low with wetness – maidenhair ferns pop with color and a chubby garden bird delights.
Even the old boy himself can tolerate the rain…
…for a little bit at least.
Pirate “enjoying” the rain. ^.^
And a blast of the most unnatural pink you’ll ever see!
My daughter calls it “Barbie Pink”.
Thanks for visiting our garden on this rainy day!
