CHANGING SEASONS: ALL THE WORLD IS BLOOMING

72-fuchsia-2-051716_038

The month started out unpromising. Cold and rainy, it was like a mini monsoon season featuring two weeks of gray skies and chilly nights.

Then, suddenly, the rain stopped. While we shopped for groceries, spring arrived. The trees went from buds to leaves. The whole world bloomed.

What’s this «Changing Seasons» blogging challenge?

Some words from Cardinal Guzman

«The Changing Seasons 2016» is a blogging challenge with two versions: the original (V1) which is purely photographic and the new version (V2) where you can allow yourself to be more artistic and post a painting, a recipe, a digital manipulation, or simply just one photo that you think represents the month. Anyone with a blog can join this challenge and it’ll run throughout 2016. It doesn’t matter if you couldn’t join the first month(s), late-comers are welcomed. These are the rules, but they’re not written in stone – you can always improvise, mix & match to suit your own liking:

These are the rules for Version 1 (The Changing Seasons V1):

  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
  • Each month, post 5-20 photos in a gallery.
  • Don’t use photos from your archive. Only new shots.

These are the rules for Version 2 (The Changing Seasons V2):

  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
  • Each month, post one photo (recipe, painting, drawing, whatever) that represents your interpretation of the month.
  • Don’t use archive stuff. Only new material!

  1. It’s quite amazing isn’t it? One minute the world is black and white and the next… Whoosh! Mother Nature attacks again! Lovely to see your world in such fabulous colour Marilyn.

      • It has been rather humid here the last couple of days, I don’t do humidity. Today has been foggy again. My fault for moving so close to the coast and uphill too! But the lanes are exploding in colour so I am very happy.

  2. It is definitely getting colder for us. We even had our first snowfall of the winter in the deep south of the South Island. And on the ranges to the west of us. But our days are still rather warm. Just as well I had my flu shot. Lovely series of photos

    • Thank you. Funny you being at the other side of the world. When I was a kid, they told us that on the other side of the planet, the seasons were opposite, but it was just stuff they said. Knowing you has made it real 🙂

  3. Some wonderful photos. Glad to see that Spring has arrived in your part of the woods. Our first blooming session is now finishing and everything is going to seed, which also has its charm.
