MAY 2023 CHALLENGE - Shower Power: Flaunt Your Fabulous Blooms Brought to Life by April Showers!

 

As the saying goes, "April showers bring May flowers." It's a reminder that springtime brings new growth and fresh blooms after the winter. 

 

Now that spring is in the air, we are excited about the promise of beautiful blossoms. As a nature enthusiast, I've been eagerly waiting for this time of year to witness the magic of blooming flowers. I've been keeping a close eye on my own garden too, looking so forward to May 1. In celebration of the day, I'm thrilled to announce this month’s ActiveRain challenge!



Like many others, I find incredible joy in the beauty of springtime. This year, let’s celebrate by sharing photos of our favorite flowers that have bloomed thanks to April showers. From vibrant tulips to delicate cherry blossoms to bold daffodils, each flower has its own unique charm and beauty. What’s your favorite?

 

 

Here’s the skinny…

 

Simply post your favorite photo of a flower (or more than one in one blog post) that you are especially fond of. Include the name of the flower and any additional information about where the photo was taken and why it's your favorite.

 

 

By sharing our love for these beautiful flowers, we can bring a little bit of joy and positivity to the world. Let's embrace the challenge and celebrate the wonders of springtime together!


You will receive 1,000 points for your post of 300+ words + your photo. You will need to share the link to your post in the comments below. While only one post will receive credit in this month’s challenge, feel free to share more photos - why not celebrate the wonders of spring all month! Please have all post links below by midnight PST on 5/31/2023.
