Theme Day - best photo of 2007

I have only been posting for a little over a month, so I feel that my choices are a bit limited. However, I have chosen one photo that I consider is worth a second look.

I originally posted this shot on Dec 8th using the title "An Aussie Gardener". The kangaroo is part of a display on the banks of the River Torrens adjoining the West End Brewery. I think this fellow has been taking good care of the plants.

Such a cute roo! Good pick.

I look forward to visiting your blog more often this 2008. And you're welcome to mine, too! For some reason, my link was not included in the participating blogs for the 1st of January 2008 theme day. Sorry I wasn't able to visit your blog sooner. I was in transit the whole of yesterday. I am now back in Norwich after the most fantabulous time at home in Manila.

Happy New Year to you and everyone you hold dear!
