May Blooms : What's Blooming in My Yard?


 May Blooms : What's Blooming in My Yard?

This has been an unusual Spring in NJ with lower temperatures and rain, rain, RAIN; making blooming much later than usual and harder to photograph. For a while I thought I'd have nothing to show, but finally decided to carry my camera around each day and chronicle any current growth..
Journaling:
Box 1
2011 May blossoms in NJ evolved slowly and much later than usual. Rainfall for the month was higher and temperatures much lower than normal. Flowers that traditionally blossomed early in the month waited until the end to show their beauty.
Box 2
I faithfully carried my camera with me each day hoping to catch Spring unfolding. It started with tiny buds, pussy willow and dandelions, then seemed to stand still while cold weather and rain deluged us. Finally, towards the end of the month trees and flowers started to blossom with rosebuds finally opening in full bloom on the last few days of May!

For this layout I used:
ACA SS Digital Layout Templates: Year in Review
DCA Zip Kit: Rainbow Bright
Refresh Collection Biggie
SNU SS Alpha Lifted Photo
and a month of my own photos! :)



    What a beautiful display of all your flowers! Splendid job!!!
    I love how you used this template! Beautiful!
    Wow! This took my breath away, Marilyn! What gorgeousness you've captured! I just adore the way you used a template for this fabulous layout and captured so much beauty and color! This is such an outstanding layout - I love it!
    So many flowers! Love the grid and the way you've used it with the photos! Nice job!
    Beautiful layout. I love the way you used the grid, letting some photos cover several squares. I want to try that. I also like the way the center flower pops out of the frame. Nice work!
    Super LO and what great photos. Really like your center flower. It does POP!
    Gorgeous. We used the same template for our layout. What beautiful flowers you photographed and they look just beautiful on this page.
    I love the graphical style you used here. I especially love the little flower in the middle that you did OOB. Nice job!
    Wow you have alot blooming in your garden. This is a lovely look into what is happening in your neck of the woods.
    WOW!! Such a cool use of that template. And what a great project to have snapped shots regularly to chronicle the blooming of spring. Love it :)
