The sun sets on 2011...

Here are some final photos from the last day of the year.  We had sun, hail, rain today all in a very short period of time.
The witch hazel is starting to show some of it's winter colour.
 They looked so delicate in the afternoon sun.
 Raindrops left over from the showers a few hours earlier clung to the beauty berries.
 They look so delicate and fragile.
 My winter wreath welcomes you to my home.
 One of the resident ducks just hanging out on the quay.
 What is that sea gull trying to do?  It is trying to steal the loon's dinner.
 He or she dove below the water to escape the gull and surfaced with this tasty bite.
 Winter flowering forsythia is starting to bloom.
 These bare branches put out a pretty delicate pink blossom.
 In my courtyard the roses are still putting out blooms.  White ones.
 Some pink.
 A red.
 Yet another red.
 As the sun sets on 2011 my wish is that you have a safe and healthy Happy New Year.
See you in 2012!
