November’s garden challenge theme is woodland — individual trees or leaves or woodland/forest views, fungi, wildlife or wildflowers. For my first post this month, I’ve gone with the striking shapes of tree silhouettes, whether snow-covered in winter, defiantly clinging to life with a few leaves, or undeniably dead.
May’s theme for Jude’s Garden Challenge is wild flowers. I spotted all these flowers while walking along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
I actually do know the name of these white flowers: cliff rose.
There is one thing to be said for heavy rain: it does present some interesting photo opportunities. These monochrome green photos were taken at the Grand Canyon on a dripping, fog-filled morning when the vibrant new growth was washed clean by the downpour. For a very different monochrome photo of the “view” on that day, click here.
