2015 in pictures

Happy New Year Everyone!

I want to wish you all a very blessed year ahead full of peace, joy, contentment, happiness and good health.

I thought I'd start the year off with a review of my favourite photos of 2015.  You know I take thousands of pictures, a lot of which end up in the trash, so it was really difficult to pick out some of my favourites for the year.  So...because there are 12 months in a year I will share 12 photos (or collages) - one for each month.  Enjoy.

This was a tree burning on January 3.  Our son's neighbours huge spruce tree blew down on Dec. 26 so a bonfire was in order.

You may recall that we had one of the longest snowiest winters in recent years last year.  This is a drift in the backyard that Murray was clearing a path through in February.

Kings Landing Historical Settlement - Sugar Bush Weekend.

My own daffodils from my garden!  Finally spring arrived.

New 'neighbours' moved in.  So fun to watch.

Our feeble attempt at vegetable gardening would be our last.  Too many weeds and too many deer!  But...look at all that green grass!

The big event for July was my big birthday!  As Murray says - I'm 'working' for the government now.  :-)

Hopewell Rocks near Moncton, NB
Summer weather finally arrived in August after a wet and cool start to the season.  It got hot and I loved it.  We did a lot of day trips together and I did some hiking with friends.  It was a great month!

September saw us winging our way to Calgary to visit our grandkids and their parents.  We had a great visit and it was fun to do things with these 3 little guys who are growing way too fast.

Because of our 'late' start to summer we had some spectacular fall colours this year well into October.

Walking in the park on a crisp fall day and a week later I was decorating for Christmas.  

We had a freezing rain storm on Dec. 12 which coated everything in sparkling ice.  We also had about 2 feet of snow before the end of the month.  Winter has arrived.

The year 2015 was a good one for us.  God has blessed us abundantly and we are truly grateful.
I wish for each of you peace, joy, contentment and good health in the year ahead.  Thank you for following along on my little blog.  I appreciate it very much and hope I can keep it rolling along in 2016.  HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Have a great weekend.

  16. Hi Pam, What a wonderful way to recap your year. Love them.

  17. Nice to look back over a year of memories although it might be nice to skip the amount of snow from last winter. Yay, an OAS cheque coming in monthly can pay for a few lunches out with the girls, or treating Murray. :-)
    I hope the milder weather continues until spring for both of us.

  18. Beautiful pic's from the year gone by! Happy New Year, Pam & Murray!

  19. Hi Pam, I always say your pictures are so lovely but these are fabulous. Each one is very enjoyable. I like the one of your and your hubby on your birthday and the ones of the grandsons......although they all are perfect. Happy New Year!

  20. Happy New Year, Pam.
    Beautiful collection of photographs, I enjoyed them all.

  21. Happy New Year Pam!
    Beautiful photographs. I love to read your blog, thank you.

  22. Beautiful photos of the past year Pam! Happy New Year!

  23. Your photos are always lovely, Pam. I especially like the ones that show the east coast locale -it is on our bucket list for one day. We have a Christmas tree burning bonfire at my bil and sil's every summer. They do go up fast after being so dry. We have only a covering of snow, with a bit of ice, nothing like you have had this winter. Wishing you and yours all the best in this New Year.

  24. It's such fun to look back and see what all has changed...month by month. And the 1950....hhhmmmm...that looks very familiar to me too! haha! Happy New year! Hugs, Diane
