blogFlower Days of May

June 01, 2015

April showers bring May flowers, for sure.

Flower Days of May was my second attempt at social media as a creative outlet. This time, participants had to photograph and post flowers they see. Again, the aim was to find the beauty around us, whether it be a blooming weed to a flowering tree. It was also an attempt to redirect our minds in a more positive direction, as many close to me had a trying April. This was not quite as difficult as the first Instagram creative challenge I proposed, but it was equally as enjoyable AND there were a few more participants.

Throughout the month of May, there I was, taking photos of flowers everywhere I went, from the post office, outside the grocery to a water park.  Since I’m not one to post numerous times a day, many of my photos were never posted and are now in a reference image folder for future works, BONUS!!! I think I had developed some sort of flower radar because I even seeing types of flowers in my yard I had never noticed before. By initiating this flower challenge, I also unintentionally started a gardening addiction at the home front. Can’t really complain about that though, the front yard is looking wonderful!
