Summertime… and the blogging is fun!

Today, I am starting the July edition of the Ultimate Blogging Challenge. This blogging challenge is held quarterly, and the goal of the challenge is to share one blog post per day for the entire month.



This month, I plan on talking about gardening, delicious foods that I make from goodies purchased at the farmers market, walking trips, and outdoor painting adventures, and so much more. I plan on sharing photographs, stories, and artwork. 



The theme of my most recent blogging challenge, which was in April, was all about spring unfolding. Did I jinx the weather??? During that time period, the weather refused to cooperate with my theme.

We started off with snow and ended up with monsoon season.  I had to scramble to find something to write about because those hoped-for floral photographs were not happening.

Cameras generally don’t like rain, and they especially dislike monsoons. Well, the flowers finally came, mostly in May and June. And now, it is summer. The flowers did finally show up and my world is now full of vivid colors.

So… come and visit every day, and I promise you something colorful or fun or adventurous… or maybe, all of those!
