Monday we looked at the top posts of 2021 in terms of visitors and link party features. At the end of the first year of my little blog, I did a post of my favorite flowers from the year before. I included flowers in the garden or in a bouquet. If you’ve visited me before you probably know flowers are one of my great loves. Several years ago I also included a few nature shots, another great love. Today’s post is some of my favorites photos of flowers and nature from 2021. I hope I included some of yours too.
This is the third post in a series on photography. If you missed the first, see Treasured Moments in Art. The second is Organizing Your Phone Photos.
My mother died back in 1986. At that time she was living with my sister and had two bedrooms there. One to use for sleeping and one for a TV room. I helped my sister clear out the rooms and became custodian of boxes of old letters and photographs from my mother’s life and from my grandmother. My mother had brought home a box of photos from her mother’s apartment after her death six years earlier. Back in the 1980’s the choices were more limited for organizing the photos. I bought archival storage items and began trying to organize the memories from the past. Old photos, letters, and newspaper clippings are printed on paper containing acid. Over time the print fades and the paper deteriorates. Use acid-free paper and album materials to store precious old family photos. For more information, see How to Store Old Photos.

When I was growing up, my mother or father took the photos for the passages of our lives. We were posed, stood still with our little smiles, and a button was pushed. Birthdays, holidays, and vacations. Photos were taken for these important happenings, they were printed, and then they were put in the photo album or stored in the photo envelope in my father’s desk.Read More
For the last few years, I started off January with a favorite flowers of the previous year post. This year it’s a little later and I’ve also expanded my photos to include more types of posts. My Top Posts of 2018 the first week of January addressed everyone else’s favorite posts. Today I’m sharing my favorite photos from travel, home, nature, and garden posts of 2018. I hope you enjoy it. We’re starting with my post on beautiful Bok Tower Garden in Lake Wales, Florida. It’s one of my favorite places in Florida with lush contemplative garden rooms and beautiful bells ringing out in concerts.
