Wild Weekly Photo Challenge : Now

“The Wild Weekly Photo Challenge encourages bloggers to head into the wild (or the backyard) and photograph something that they feel fits the weekly theme. Once you’ve posted your blog entry, comment on the Challenge theme that you’re entering with the link to your post! Each week we choose one first place winner, one audience choice winner, and five honorable mention winners. Be sure to read the simple rules in each challenge to make sure your entry qualifies!”

I have just recently found this site and it showcases beautiful photos and travel stories from around the world. I love it. This is what they challenged us with this week…

“The theme for this challenge is pretty simple – Now! While all our other challenges have allowed you to go back through your archives and select the most appropriate photos, this challenge theme is all about heading outside this week & taking photos! After all, LetsBeWild.com is all about getting people outside and enjoying the great outdoors….so what better time than now? Be creative and go exploring, and remember, the shots for this challenge have to be taken this week!”

Last night I woke to the beautiful sound of rain. For 2 months the conditions have been dry and I have watered the garden almost every day. The sound of rain made me smile. It made the plants smile too and I went outside to try to capture the soft, dripping, life-giving rain-drops as they coated the plants…

    • Thank you Rita for that lovely comment, the tree is a grevillea and is a native to Australia. It has over 300 species and ranges from groundcover to shrubs and tall trees. The birds just love it and our colourful parrots are beautiful to watch them feeding on the blossoms

    • This weather system is tracking south as a tornado and is leaving flooding every where behind it. It is our turn this weekend, hopefully it does not cause too much grief. We need that rain. Has your rain and mud dried up yet?

      • we had a three day break, and i worked on the fence, pulled weeds, pruned limbs.. and then the rains resumed.. two days ago about four inches of rain, and steady gentle rain almost since.. so basically the entire month has been rainy, though we’re happy to have it.

        tornadoes! yikes! we had tornadoes in mississippi where i grew up, but few in tropical america. z

        • Tornados can be scary we do not get as many here as they do further north. Pulling weeds is so easy after rain and a very satisfying task
