I thought I’d see what the usual WordPress Year in Review said about what went on here in 2016 … but there isn’t one this year for some reason. So instead I looked up my stats myself and here are my top 10 posts from the year. Hope you like seeing the featured photos from the posts again.
All of the photos are of wonderful natural areas, creatures and flowers, which can be seen year after year as the seasons continue to roll. They have such resilience, and I look forward to spotting the damsels, dragons, spring flowers, butterflies and ferns as 2017 unfurls.
If you want to read a post, just click the title (clicking the photo will let you see a larger version of the photo).
I think my personal favourite is number 5 when I witnessed brand new damselflies emerging by my garden pond 🙂 Feel free to let me know your favourite if you like.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And may the blessing of the earth be on you,
soft under your feet as you pass along the roads,
soft under you as you lie out on it, tired at the end of day;
May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.
May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May you have warm words on a cold evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill all the way to your door.
May brooks and trees and singing hills
Join in the chorus, too.
And every gentle wind that blows
Send happiness to you.
