I’m joining in the The View Challenge at Lucky Snapping hosted by my dear friend, Jen. You can find the full details here. While reading Jen’s post I was sidetracked into looking at Anne’s blog and read what she was saying about serendipity …
ser·en·dip·i·ty (n. pl. ser·en·dip·i·ties)
the faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident; the fact or occurrence of such discoveries; an instance of making such a discovery
I mulled over Jen’s challenge for a while and put it to the side of my mind in the hope of a serendipitous moment presenting itself. Later in the blog week, Jen suggests we look at the view from our kitchen window – and there it was – a lovely view I can see every day of the week, take for granted and rarely look at properly. It’s been a mild winter to date and everything looks lush and green. Michael has pruned the vines right back and they will start to bud (probably) in April. You can see the bare vine poles awaiting the new growth. The scene from the window will change dramatically through the year, and I will be there, every 2nd of the month, to record those changes. So, here is January from my kitchen window, using a sketch I made from Jen’s layout.
