Full-blown rose

0712 blown red rose, Cowra

And so the year has bloomed and is ending. Thank you to everyone who's read this blog, commented, and led that ticker to list 99 countries from which visitors have come (wonder when it will crack the magic 100!).

To burgle a line from Philip Larkin's poem, "The Trees":

Last year is dead, they seem to say,
Begin afresh, afresh, afresh.

Happy New Year. I wonder what it will hold, this fresh start?

(This photo was taken at the wonderful Cowra Rose Garden. It was such a windy day I was surprised how many photos were in focus. Bed after bed of colour and blooms. Just beautiful. Thanks be for how a digital camera and memory card allows you to be profligate with your photos.)

If you want a holiday film recommendation for tomorrow's public holiday, Enchanted was great fun as a meringue movie - kids would enjoy it, and adults would chuckle too.
