K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

15 May

Greetings to you all and welcome to this summertime edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, today bringing some sunshine into your Monday, via my prompt; How does your garden grow?

As I said in Friday’s post, we shall be moving house (well, flat) in a week or so, meaning that we will have to start again with a clean slate in a new garden (which we have been able to start work on already, for reasons that will become clear soon) and say goodbye to the green-bordered patio area that makes up the majority of our current outside space.

But mostly I will miss The Mound.

The overgrown, weed-choked, sloping flower bed in the corner, which we transformed into the ever-changing tapestry of colours and textures it is now over the last two years, has been a constant source of pleasure and satisfaction, not to mention the many stunning photo opportunities it has provided.

So it seemed only right that I feature it in at least one more post before we bequeathed it to its new custodians.

I’d love to take a look round some of your gardens, why don’t you give us a tour?

K’lee’s photos from across the pond are now to be found HERE, why not go over and check them out.


To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.

Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

    Your garden looks so lovely! 🙂 I’m kinda sad that you’ll have to leave this behind. Amazing photos, as usual!
    On a different note, I might be able to participate in this one! Of course my camera quality isn’t as good and my editing skills are subzero, but my garden is pretty in itself, so I’m hoping I won’t need that.

        I don’t know if my pingback worked, but I did do a post on it. Let me know what you think! 🙂

      Fear not, I’m sure the new garden will provide many new opportunities.

    Fabulous photos, Dale. Sorry I haven’t taken part lately, but I’ve been busy the last few weekends, and I never seem to get around to your challenge until after Tuesday! I’ll try to make it next Monday 🙂

      That’s ok, you can take part any day you like, just leave a link or pingback when you post.
