On the Edge VII: Another year in sunrises

I'm a bit late with my this year's round-up of sunrises, etc, from my bedroom window, which I do because 1) they mark the passing of my days, and 2) I like to gloat over my treasure. But here they are - mid-April 2021 to mid-April 2022 in sun tracks and skyscapes.
