One thing I like to do regularly on my blog is look back at the same month last year. Welcome to the start of my 2018 Calendar.
I’ve been doing this for two years, collecting 20 (at first it was 12) favourite photos from each month, creating lasting memories, safekeeping moments forever gone.
At the end of the year I take one photo from each monthly post for my final calendar. I don’t print it out or anything, it only exists online.
Here are previous results:
This post marks the beginning of the new, 2018 Calendar, and this is how my last year’s January looked like.
Other than grocery shopping and my daily walk to the train station, I didn’t go anywhere. See for yourself if this is a bad thing. As we’ve discovered
a few posts ago, I live next to a nature reserve and do my grocery shopping by the flamingo lagoon.
This year, no mimosa yet. In fact, they promise snow in Rome for tomorrow… Let’s wait and see.
Let’s start at home. I wear my heart on the windowsill. The first record player I’ve owned is getting a bit dusty. Melanzane alla parmigiana. Lucky me, bestia takes me out regularly. Blades of wet grass. Humidity wins. Nature’s Christmas tree. My daily view towards where the Aurelia road passes. Bestia requests another dog buddy for the seesaw. Graffiti has been cleaned by now. Somewhat. Snow Melts Somewhere, this one is for you! Look how guilty these three look! Could they have something to do with that bundle in front? This Mimosa (Persian silk tree) was blooming away happily, while this year it has no intention to start yet. It’s just above freezing. The Orbetello lagoon, next to our supermarket. That day I went to the opposite bank of the lagoon. From this side flamingos are a bit closer. But still far. Monte Argentario looming above. “Who are you calling extinct?” If it’s good for flamingos, it’s good for the Northern Bald Ibis. Enchanted princesses. Partners in crime. Walk on by. Good night, Lake Burano. Hello, moon. (Probably they lured me out with promises of super blood red vampire moon again.)
