ABC Wednesday - J is for Journey's End



I started ABC Wednesday in round 1 with K is for Knott End on Sea and now at J in round 4 having done the entire alphabet three times, it is time to stop.

It is an appropriate time also because we are moving on ourselves from the house we have lived in for over twenty years and saying goodbye to the daffodils under the willow tree which we grew from a sapling.

Although all the wiring is in place at our new home, it will take British Telecom nearly three weeks to connect the line. So we shall have no home internet for a while.

I have scheduled posts on Hyde Daily Photo for the period while I'm offline and co-opted our good friend Rune Eide of Visual Norway to keep an eye both there and here to squash any malevolent bugs that might arrive in the comment boxes.

ABC Wednesday posts will continue on my photoblog sithenah.

We'll be starting a new journey shortly and will doubtless be back here in a bit telling you all about it.

For more J posts visit ABC Wednesday.

  1. A truly lovely "parting" shot. It seems full of renewal - the flowers, yet with the tree also of longing. Leaving must be hard but you must be so excited to be going to your new home. Best wishes for a smooth move. Tash

  2. Gerald:

    A (not so) tiny bit sad to say goodbye to a place where one has lived for long, and you did it with your usual aplomb. I wish you and you wife all the best with both the moving process and your new home.

    PS I'll do my best!

  4. This is indeed a lovely parting shot! Moving is always difficult when you've been in one place for a long time, hard to leave the memories that lie in every corner. But there is also excitement in starting anew! I will hold good thoughts for you, that the move goes smoothly and I will look forward to your lovely photos again soon!

  17. It's hard at times to leave the familiar with all its memories, but also an adventure and a wonderful chance for creativity in a new house and neighborhood. I hope all goes well with your move and that the movers don't break some cherished piece of furniture (voice of experience).
