Here, 2012 was undoubtedly The Year Of The Puppy.
There were other things as well--a visit to San Diego...
A longer visit to Tucson.
Some of the local sights were cool, too.
Succulents were as popular in 2012 as they were in 2011. Are we tired of them yet? What's next? Topiary?

After a spotty start, a great year for roses:

Bad and good, a year in a garden is a beautiful adventure. I hope your 2012 was filled with garden beauty, and I wish your a beautiful 2013.
