Day 365:  The Final Day of the Challenge.

The remains of a rose in the garden taken this morning and to mark the 'end' of this chapter.

It has been great fun and I have learnt so much ..... much more than I would ever imagine. A fantastic journey!

What next?   I am not sure but it will not be a daily affair and will probably be more fibre art related.

Day 335:

The flowers from my 'Yellow Flag' bush (do not know the botanical name) and a perfect ant!

One month to go

I have often taken more than one pic on a day during this challenge and although I deleted a fair amount I did keep quite a lot of  really nice ones and so I have decided to 'change' the rules at this point. For the month of December the pictures posted may not always be a pic taken on the day as I revisit past pics and maybe post those which I would like to share.

What with COP17 on in my city at the moment and the talk around fossil fuels, carbon emissions etc, etc, I thought I would share this pic taken last night.  A very unusually large,interesting piece of coal that came out of the bag for our braai (barbecue) last night.
