The Year's Favourite Photos

 
Why do I take so many pictures of my garden? I am not sure. Une belle souvenir to tide me over  during these long winter days. I limited myself to only one garden photo in this collection which mainly deals with literary moments. Over the year I talked to so many wonderful writers and happily, got a photo of many of them.  Photos are memories. They pinpoint a moment in one's life. Here are a few pics taken during  2013, that remain with me.
