************* Good Things Happened 2015 *************

Hello!  This is an end-of-the-year post with one photo from each month of my blog.  I have loved these peaceful couple of hours scrolling through my posts and selecting photos that made me smile at the memory.  As always, click to enlarge to see more detail.

 - January.  I titled this post "Day is done. Photo taken outside the library near my home, after work.

- February.  The Presbytery of Greater Atlanta held a meeting in a church right across from our Georgia state capitol building in Atlanta.  I love its gold leafed dome.

- March.  Lenten roses at an Atlanta beltline park near the end of an after work walk.

- April.  Sweet violets at the weekend park in Lilburn, Georgia.

- May.  Note to self:  New Guinea impatiens do not do well on my back porch.  They sure were pretty that first day though.

- June.  The privet was blooming at the site of a Civil War battle - the same beltline park mentioned above.

- July.  I loved catching this bee in flight.  

- August.  My aunt's dog, Cotton, very interested in something down below.  At her home in Franklin, North Carolina.

- September.  A beloved spot - the walking path along the dam at Lake Chatuge.  Hiawassee, Georgia.

- October.  I titled this photo "by the light of the silvery moon."  Taken one morning as I was leaving for work.

- November.  Fallen leaves looking beautiful, in their own way.

- December.  Christmas Day at niece Amanda's beau's home in Madison, Florida.  It was a beautiful drive there to be with them for breakfast.  Lots of activity with a busy and excited six-year-old running around.  The larger rocking chairs belonged to my parents and were on their back porch at their home in Milledgeville, Georgia.  I'm delighted they are here now in this peaceful spot.  I told Amanda that her grandparents would have loved it there.  She says that she, her beau and his little girl sit in these chairs every evening and watch the sun set.

Happy New Year, y'all!  See you in 2016!

Wonderful selection of a few of the Good Things you have shared this past year. Can't wait to see what 2016 has in store. I always love your crying angel. Or is she praying? I am going to try hard to be a better bloger this year.

Again this year has gone as memory's seem to flow
Yes you post twelve pic of how your time did go

Yet I have to ask you of all the ones we see
which touched your heart the most, then I'll let it be.

The majestic beauty that is the South. Hope you had a fantastic New Year's Eve, and here's to an equally fantastic 2016.
