    What a great way to finish off the year, with a look at some of your lovely photos. Love your little doggie! That shot of the bird of prey is wonderful. Happy New Year Eliza!

    Happy new year to you, Eliza, and we hope to get a chance to meet you in person in early May if you’re around!

  4. What a delightful retrospective! Is that your dog? So cute! I hope good things are ahead for you in 2022!

    Such a lovely album of photographs! You are quite talented, my dear. I’ve enjoyed your illustration of the year’s journey throughout. They have made a hard one more bearable & beautiful. Thank you!

  6. Eliza, this is a beautiful slide show! I truly enjoyed it. ❤

  7. Lovely way to recap the year. Best wishes for 2022…we all hope it is going to be the year we say goodbye to the pandemic. (Suzanne)

    What a wonderful recap of the year, Eliza!
    Happy 2022 to you and yours!

  13. Alice says:

    That’s sad about Rufus. You have so many (all) gorgeous photos…must have been difficult to choose. I love the Cow & of course the Monarch. A safe & happy & healthy 2022 to all.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Alice. I miss my small friend a lot, he was such a gentleman. 🙂 I limited myself to 2 photos a month, I didn’t want to overwhelm anyone! 😀

  14. Jewels says:

    What beautiful images Eliza! Wishing you a happy, healthy, blessed New Year! ❤

  15. Su says:

    Thank you for all the beautiful images. Happy New Year! Su

  16. Tina says:

    The year was meh, your photos beautiful! All the best for 2022–I look forward to more of your lovely posts!

  17. What a wonderful beautiful glorious world – even among the always present chaos. Your photographic eye sees and then shares the beauty of our moments, a kind gift to your readers. Happy, Happy New Year to you Eliza and your loved ones!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you most kindly, Gary. Happy to share. Enjoy your New Year’s … will you stay up? I suppose with the time difference, you can watch the Times Sq. ball drop at 9 pm and be in bed by 10. 😉 I’m pretty sure I’ll be snoozing. 😀

      • I doubt I will make it until midnight unless indigestion sets in from too much clam dip! I’m not too crazy about those New Year’s Eve shows. I keep saying “Who in the hell is this person? What’s so funny about that?” But, at midnight it gets kind of scary around with the gunshots. Our neighbors have a tremendous amount of ammunition!

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Good golly, I hope there are no stray bullets! That would be a bad start to a new year. :-/

      • Mostly shotguns with a spraying pattern but sometimes I do wonder…

  18. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing the beauty in your world, and offering the fruits of your labors in pictures all year. Happy new year Eliza. Sending blessings for new growth, more beauty, more love and peace.

  19. Kris P says:

    That’s a great selection of photos, Eliza. I was going to ask about the pup in the first shot but I noted your response to someone else – I’m sorry you lost Rufus, who looks like a sweetie. I notice that the feline terrorist known as Bunny didn’t make the slideshow…

    I hope 2022 brings us all reasons for joy and hope!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Kris. Rufus belonged to a good friend and I loved that little guy so much. I miss his special ‘roo-roo’ greeting when I now arrive. 😦
      Bunny, that little terror, was re-homed as a barn cat in Aug. ’19 and made herself a happy home there. The owner loves her and she is really good at her job keeping the rats and mice down in the barn. I got another tiger adult (Annie) soon thereafter and she is an absolute sweetheart, so things worked out for the best.
      I would really love it if things smoothed out in the year ahead. I’m tired of riding these stormy seas!

  20. Val Boyko says:

    Now that is one very cute pup! Thank you for sharing such lovely images from you garden and nature. Happy New Year Eliza 🎈🎉💕

  23. A lovely photographic review of the seasons of 2021, Eliza. Wishing you a happy 2022!

  24. Anne says:

    I have enjoyed this delightful overview of the year just past. I hope this new one will flow more smoothly and provide more opportunities for engagement with our loved ones. Take care.

  25. How beautiful your garden looks, Eliza. And the pup is adorable! I always enjoy your photography and these shots are stunning. I wish you every good thing for the coming year.
