Starfish And French Cooking

The Eucomis or Pineapple Lily is in flower now. Beautiful little white/pink flowers with a red and yellow starfish centre. They smell slightly fragrant, and are opening from the bottom of the red stem upwards.
The leaves have been decimated by the strong Yorkshire winds and rain though. They are glossy, red strappy leaves but are not tough..
We went to the Cinema yesterday to see Julie and Julia, a film with a blog in it.
The character Julie wants to cook all 53o recipies in Julia Childs The Art Of French Cooking, in one year. She blogged the 365 days of cooking, and eating.
Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci are brilliant together again, and have some of the funniest parts of the film.
I dont know what blog challenge I can set myself for a whole year?Take 365 photos? What have other people done for a years challenge and used the blog as a vehicle to document their challenges?
I'm sat writing this and watching the garden birds fly in and out of the garden. Goldfinches, Blue Tits, House Sparrows, and a Robin.
More allotment clearing today...
