The Year in Review 2011

Another  year has come and gone, where does the time go!

January

Yet another idea for my garden, it would be a lovely reminder of my time in Barbados!

February

Bumped up my country count with a quick trip to Trinidad.

March

Oooh, maybe this would be a better reminder of my time in Barbados.

April

I arrive back in Canada, just in time for the snowdrops, yay!

May

I finally get to visit Brian Bixleys garden, after wanting to for many years.

June

The trees in the Lime Walk get their first prune.

July

Visited Hunte’s Gardens, an amazing place in Barbados.

August

Saw my first Kadooment Day parade, and vowed to start exercising when I saw the size of the costumes.

September

The hydrangea (free leftovers from Easter sales), finally started bulking up in the Lime Walk and looking like something.

October

Visited another amazing garden while I was home in the autumn. Keppel Croft is located close to Kilbourne Grove.

November

My SIL came for a visit and we tried zip lining, what an adrenalin rush.

December

Christmas on the island, what a glorious feeling.

Interested in what happened last year? You can read about it here.

    I do like everyone’s year in review posts, they satisfy my need for overview and wrap up! And yours is particularly exotic with the contrasts of Barbados and Kilbourne Grove!

    I think it’s fabulous that you get to split your time between two very different locales. Happy New Year Deborah!

    That back and forth kind of lifestyle sounds glamorous but I know it’s a kind of torture for a gardener.

    I had forgotten about that wonderful stone bowl and urns. There’s been so many wonderful gardens that you visited this year.

    Looks like another adventurous year for you. Caught my breath as I saw the snowdrops in your garden – how lovely.

    You have had a full and interesting year! I have added zip lining to my to-do list! My oldest son recently found a great place for zip lining not too far away in Georgia, and I am looking forward to it. Have a great 2012!
