Keeping records and making plans

Blogs with pictures. I like keeping a log of my pictures, I load some onto Fickr, when the weather permits I can be taking photographs everyday. I marvel and wonder at the changes around us, things happen so fast.

Its cold here, a chill wind blows, the ground has thawed and the garden outside is squishy mud. But a flick through my pictures shows me that in no time at all we will be outside planting seeds and pulling weeds. So even though I am stuck indoors I can enjoy this time.
Six months ago, the foxgloves were still blooming , the passion flower was a mass of buds and my pretty pink rose was just that.
Passion Buds

Today I am looking back at photographic memories and it gives me hope that there are wonderful things to come, I could make some plans for my garden?

Of course there are lots of things that I don't photograph that need to be planned for, like paying the car insurance, and the French MOT or Control Technique!

The French word for bud is boutonner. Its a bit like the word button!

Etymology for the word button.

The French word for marvel is marveille.

Etymology for the word marvel.

"Of course there are lots of things that I don't photograph that need to be planned for, like paying the car insurance" ... made me laugh! Nice bud picture. It feels like if you stare at it long enough, it will slowly bloom!

I love the bud photo. I've still got drooping buds all over the passion flower and it's too high up the wall for me to climb up and hard prune it. I do hope it will flower again,

I can see the tips of the hyacinth bulbs showing and it makes me so happy to think that Spring will be next.

what a perfect flower bud.
I'm flipping through my summer photos too and wishing the sun will come out from behind the gray skies soon.
