Philosophy by photos.

Sometimes you have to start small, very small.

And sometimes things can get a little hairy.

Sometimes it is best to sway with the breeze.

Every year is different, not yours to decide.

The blossom of the Olearia phlogopappa survives a small hailstorm, unlike the previous two years.

Speak, but also listen.

Your time will come to shine.

Daviesia mimosoides – my landcare group has planted two seedlings in the park.
Hopefully they will survive and grow as beautiful as this one.

This is my last chance to participate in the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge for 2022. This week’s theme is Last Chance and the brief is to publish for the first time some favourite photos taken during 2022. All but one of the photos was taken in my garden or my local park. Many thanks to the Lens-Artists hosts for their hard work and thoughfulness, and also to you, dear Readers, for joining me here.

Happy holiday, everyone, and see you next year.

Kind Regards.

  1. What a lovely way to celebrate the year’s endeavours. The grasses are so beautiful – then the double bonus of the wildlife they attract. A very happy Christmas and more win-win projects in 2023.

  3. I loved every word of this, Tracy. My favorite thought was “Every year is different, not yours to decide. ” So much truth to that. And yet we always want to control everything. lol I loved that all your photos mimic the thoughts you share.

    The first photo, the insect eggs, is an impressive capture, and my favorite photo is the crimson rosella. Happy New Year.

    1. Hello Donna. Thanks for the lovely comment. I have been trying to take a few more photos lately of the things that interest me and thankfully that interest is shared by others too.
      Happy New Year to you too. I hope you enjoy your new role as a regular host of the Lens-Artists challenge. I will keep an eye out for your posts.

  4. What a great post. Thoughts we can carry with us through 2023. It’s a bit late to wish you all the best for Christmas, but happy festive season anyway, and I’ll look forward to reading more of your posts.

  5. Best one yet, Tracy. Loved the bits of wisdom with the exquisite detailed photos. I thought the first one was a large sculpture and someone had dangled a ribbon with some bells on it, until I read your caption!
