  1. I have been a lurker on you blog for way too long, but I thought I'd join in this linkup. However I haven't got a blog, so will join in via Instagram. I normally don't choose a word for the year, but like the options of choosing ones dependent on the mood at the time!!

    1. I loved seeing your post on IG - thanks so much for joining in! x

  2. Those little toadstools are so pretty. Very dry here in NZ at present, lots of wind which dries everything out. Happy New Year to you.

    1. Happy New Year to you too Julie, and thanks for joining in again! x

  3. Your landscape looks lovely and green Sarah! Aren't those mushrooms (or toadstool s perhaps) amazing? Your dogs look happy as always x

    1. It has gone wonderfully green, it's such a lovely change! x

  4. Yay! I am very pleased Here & Now is back for 2017!
    I love the picture of your dog playing in the puddles. Kate xx

    1. She was having fun zooming around the paddock, which is something she doesn't normally do. I'm so glad you've joined in this month Kate! x

  5. I love your photos, Sarah. Those tiny, detailed little fungi and a very happy carefree dog playing in puddles ... made me wish for a puddle to go jump in myself. Meg:)

  6. I just love these photos Sarah! They are absolutely stunning! Especially those yellow mushrooms :-) Megan x

  7. I popped over from Meredithe's blog, and have decided that I will join in with your link up too, (blog post to come tomorrow) Have enjoyed looking through your blog, your photos are lovely.

    1. Oh that's wonderful Pip! I look forward to seeing your post x

  8. It's looking so lush and green (and a little soggy - happy puddle splashing dogs!), Sarah! I'm so glad that you're finally getting some much needed rain.
