Photography Challenge: Flowers and Leaves


DSC_8241
I wish it actually looked like this today - it's gray and rainy and there are pollen-filled puddles everywhere. But hopefully the weather will clear soon so I can take some photos of the beautiful dogwoods that are in bloom now. Spring is beautiful in Augusta and as the city is gearing up for it's biggest tourist week it is looking better than ever.  This week's challenge is flowers and/or leaves. I can't wait to see your photos!!

Have a suggestion for next week's challenge? Let me know! Next week is reader's choice - so I want to pick on of your theme suggestions.

As a reminder:
Obviously, the photo must be your own, taken by you!
Anyone can participate in this challenge, regardless of photography equipment or skill.
Your photo does not have to be taken for this challenge - but a new photo is always fun! :)
You can link up your blog or Flickr page - be sure to link up your post and not just your blog's homepage.
Please link up only once per person.
Your post must contain a link-back to be considered as a choice for Top 5
Please grab one of my new buttons from my sidebar - thanks :)
Do take a minute to comment on each other's photos - it makes it so much more fun for everyone!
Link-up is open until next Tuesday.
I do not have a list of upcoming challenges.

Love your shot. I also have an idea for a future theme. I read this blog a few weeks ago where she was taking pictures of objects that looked like letters. I thought that sounded fun but she never started a party for it. So maybe do the letter S.

I love dogwoods flowers. I have seen them in few blogs and blog fiend Anika send me by email few more pictures about dogwood. It doesn't grow in Finland but I really wish it could.
I hope the sun is shining now and you can enjoy the day:)
