Time Flies By


The windows have become like tv screens as the season roll by displaying all their wonders. These are amongst the last photos I have taken since becoming ill which was back in the autumn of 2019. Where did autumn go …? Winter arrived and how fast January went by, eh?Β  Spring feels like it is just around the corner, and it will be here before we know it. Spring is my favourite season, and whilst I look forward to it, it all seems to fly by so very quickly.

    1. Hi Brian, and thank you. I am not out of the woods yet and appear to be stuck in a rut with my health, but I am hoping the docs will eventually sort me out. Still looking forward to spring … πŸ™‚

  1. Great to hear from you again. I hope you are better now. Great pictures, I like the third picture best. The colours and structures of the leaves are well captured.

  3. Perhaps the coming of Spring and the resurgence of all those tiny creatures that you love (or hate!) will give you the boost you need! Best wishes for a healthy recovery.

  4. I’ve been missing you, and was just on the edge of beginning to worry about you — with cause, it seems. I do hope you can be back to health sooner rather than later, so you can enjoy the fullness of the spring. Your photos are marvelous. I hope they brought you as much pleasure as they brought to me.

    1. I really appreicate your thoughts and sentiments, Linda πŸ™‚ It has been a long road since early November, and there seems no end in sight at present, but I am hopeful the docs can look further into things and get to the bottom of it.

      1. “Grow Through It” is my new motto. My dad had cancer surgery on Christmas Eve. My family is exhausted, but so relieved that he made it through.

  6. From the latest post from Damien that I’ve just read this morning: “There was weight, but then comes the wave. Weight and wave. Wait, for soon there will be wave.” I hope the healing and renewal of Spring strengthens you physically and spiritually. You’re in my prayers.

    1. Thank you very much Anne. I still have some images from last year I have yet to get round to sorting out, and hope to post in due course. I can only do little at a time, but hope to be up and ready to get out and abut in the spring … or sooner if possible.

  8. Very nice autumn-winter pictures! I like these shapes and decorative forms. I am glad you are back and wish you all the best for your health! Nature is always a good place to relax and enjoy, even if it is from inside the house.

  10. I am so sorry to hear you’ve been so unwell and stuck indoors, Pete. I can truly sympathise being in much of the same position. I can well imagine how much you miss being out in the garden and taking walks in the woods.

  11. PS I hope the doctors have some solutions for you, or at least, enable you to get outdoors more to enjoy your garden and pond life.

    1. I will be seeing my cardiac consultant tomorrow and I am hoping they will do more tests to see if they can get to bottom of things. At present I am unable to work, or get out and even potter about in the garden even in the milder weather we are having, but I am hoping with more time things will improve. Many thanks for your support Vicki πŸ™‚

      1. You’re most welcome, Pete. Take it easy and rest, rest & more rest (until you have a firm diagnosis/prognosis) Having my own heart condition upgraded to severe last October, I can well imagine how you might be feeling. You must have gone downhill about the time when I had my first heart attack last October. My heart condition is inherited and was diagnosed while I was still working, so I know the risks.

  12. Happy to see a post from you. Really like that last photo. For some reason makes me think of some sort of a Celtic design. Best wishes for good progress with health issues.

    1. Thank you very much David. The curled leaf really caught my eye, especially the way it had rolled into a ball with such a lovely pattern.

  13. Oh no! It is sad to read that you are not feeling well and that it has been like this for such a long time! I really hope you are on the road to improvement. Time flies too fast…
    Your images are as always amazing, I love especially the last one. Take care Peter and I hope to see your next post soon! Spring is in the air and waiting for you out there.

    1. Hi Anita, I really appreciate your comment, thank you. It is scary how suddenly things can change when illness hits and quite unexpectedly and there is no movement in recovery. I am unable to get out and about as I would like at present, but I am hoping with spring I may get some ‘spring’ back into me, and perhaps get my camera out again πŸ™‚

  15. Hi Peter! Lovely images, and I especially like the second one. I’m sorry to hear to that you’ve had cardiac issues and aren’t able to get out. I, too, have missed your posts and hope you get your strength back soon.

  17. I too was missing your posts, Pete. I am so sorry to hear that you are having cardiac issues. That’s a scary thing and appears to be so debilitating in your case.Having experienced a long illness and recovery at the end of 2018 I know how frustrating it can be to be laid up with little to do. I hope that your doctors come up with some course of action to speed your recovery and get you back out into nature where you are happiest. Thanks for sharing these great images with us and letting us all know where you have been. Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Hi Steve. I really appreciate your support and encouraging words. I am now waiting for an MRI scan on my heart … if it is my heart … so I guess time will tell. Thank you, and I will have to catch up on your fabulous blogs as well as others here.

      1. Catch up at your leisure and your pleasure, Pete. Wow, that’s even harder I think to be unsure. Best of luck with the MRI and since it is an unknown here’s hoping for a simple explanation and simpler remedy.

    1. Thank you, Julie. My health is still under investigation with more scans and tests to come. But autumn, along with spring, are my favourite seasons πŸ™‚ You have autumn knocking on the door there, and I have spring … we both have a lot to look forward to πŸ™‚
