The Changing Seasons: April 2017

And also, today’s Daily Post | HARMONY

We haven’t been far from home this month. Last month, we were all over the place, but this has been a stay at home time. Not in a bad way. Lots of little fixes in the house. A quiet time. We have needed quiet.

The earliest flowers are in. Crocus and forsythia. A few daffodils. Everything else is budding, waiting for next month.

In town, no leaves on the trees, but the soft fuzz of spring on the edge. This gallery is from Garry Armstrong:

And then, the rest of life as it unrolls:

And that’s April. This year, so far. The real spring surprise comes next month because May is the month of flowers. April is the hope, but May is the blooming!

What’s this «Changing Seasons» blogging challenge?

«The Changing Seasons 2017» 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 2017.
It doesn’t matter if you couldn’t join the first month(s), late-comers are welcomed.
These are the rules (want the full introduction? Click Here), 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!
