Ronovan hosts the Haiku Challenge: Prompt words INSPIRE and LOSS
Such a beautiful tribute from Edwina this week.
Jamie hosts the Photo Challenge: Prompt word GREEN
See Cathy’s ‘Green’, she has asked for a bit of help here; Jamie has delved into her archives, that’s what I like about this challenge, anything goes! Erika has grown some whoppers; Melissa has created magic with her Haiku, weaving in three aspects in a few short words and some wonderful ‘Green’ photos from the Emerald Isle; Garry’s Green.
I took the photo on Saturday, which was the most delicious day spent with my dear friends H ❤ and S ❤ , going round the amazingly varied and perfect Open Gardens in the lil ol’ village of Netherbury, West Dorset. This village is just like stepping into a period drama film set, and it was really showing off in the sunshine of Saturday. I do hope my photos do it justice – I will take you on a wander around the gardens tomorrow. The photo above is just a little taster – it is the old mill stream, with a glimpse of the old mill at the back, peeping through the trees. In use until the early 1950s the Mill has now been made into apartments – what a stunningly peaceful place to live, with over 6 acres of magnificent gardens.
Update 14.June.15: Ronovan’s Review:”Sandra of Wild Daffodil: Green. I like the image used and how she once again linked the two challenges together. An interesting source of ‘inspiration’ in this one in the words of the Haiku. I thought I would give one more little shout out to another growing community Sandra is a part of and one in which you can actually combine with the Haiku Challenge. It’s run through Blue Daisyz and it’s 52 Weeks of Photos. The great thing about this one is there is already a list of all 52 of the challenges at that link provided in blue. No, not the word Blue but the color blue. 🙂 I had to do that. Also our own Aran Island Girl is part of the photo challenge as well. I would say you could kill two challenges with one post but I don’t think that comes out quite right.”
Isn’t it great he gave us a shout out!!!
