I have been preoccupied and mostly absent from the blogosphere these last few weeks. Yes, the reason has partly been Christmas, but mostly it has been a wonderful new addition to our family. Baby Anita was born in Aberdeen just before Christmas to my son and his wife. What a wonderful Christmas present for everyone.! I know we are biased, but she is absolutely beautiful. She is our third grandchild. We have two, equally lovely, granddaughters living in Japan and count ourselves very very lucky.
It was a perfect end to a great year.
On 28th December 2013 I published my first post! I had spent Christmas getting to grips with WordPress, choosing a template and taking photos. The hardest thing was choosing a name for the blog. I wanted it to reflect where I gardened and couldn’t come up with anything very original. I settled for My Aberdeen Garden, simple and to the point.
I have really enjoyed all the interactions over the past year with fellow bloggers: gardeners and others. I have learnt a lot, about gardening, about photography and about life in general – my geography has improved enormously too. I feel I have made real friends out there as I have learnt about your gardens and your lives.
Here is a selection of my best photos throughout the year. If you have time, just click on each gallery to see the photos at their best.
Thank you all for your support and friendship this past year and I wish you all a very Happy New Year and great gardening in 2015.
