The words of this song sum up that morning when I stepped outside the front door on 4th Janaury, to the most amazing, completely unexpected sunrise  :ohmy: 8)

"Feeling Good"

 Birds flying high
 You know how I feel
 Sun in the sky
 You know how I feel
 Breeze driftin' on by
 You know how I feel
 It's a new dawn
 It's a new day
 It's a new life
 For me
 And I'm feeling good
 I'm feeling good

Things are a-shooting....

Took this today in the garden, but we can't remember what it is called. It is the first shrub to show new leaves rather than green buds. Will post the name when we remember!

Some really excellent photos but I'm tempted to disqualify Spana for over use of the 'ahhh' factor! :)

Seriously, thanks to everyone and congratulations to the winners.
