This will be my second attempt at showing highlight photos of the year. Hard to believe this blog has survived so long! Last year’s post (https://gardenbugworld.wordpress.com/2012/11/30/the-year-in-review/) ended with this thought:
Overall, a tough but fascinating year. I wonder what next year will bring!
