The Weekend Photo Project: ‘flowers in your backyard’


the weather has been so very dry in my part of the world

Couple that with pretty severe water restrictions and the yard is looking a little worse for wear.  Luckily for me the person who planted the garden up thought to include plants that are drought tolerant, so I’ve got some flowers… just not many.

I’m curious to see if anyone else has anything in the way of flowers in their backyards at the moment.  I know a few of the guys contributing to The Weekend Photo Project over on Flickr are in the northern hemisphere, so have been dealing with severely cold weather…

If you’ve been thinking about joining in with The Weekend Photo Project it’s really quite easy.  It’s a no-pressure weekend photography project, designed to get you excited about taking photos again.  You can find more details and all the links for sharing your photo here on this page.

myself and my fellow #twpp’ers would love to have you along for the ride

    My back garden is under snow at the minute and freezing freezing cold! I did manage to take a flower photo yesterday though of some dried and cold hydrangeas, not in my back yard, but just down the street!
    Enjoy your flowers x

      I would give my left leg to be cold at the moment Clare. We’ve another heat wave coming through – furnace winds and blazing sun. Looking forward to our winter this year.
      Hope things do start to thaw for you soon though. Been watching your weather on the news here – there’s been a lot of snow!

    We don’t have much at the moment either, there are a few but they’re looking pretty wilted from the heat. A few weeks ago we had some multicoloured hydrangeas that I took photos of but they’re all heat stressed as well.

    I think we might have one little bush of pink roses that have survived as they’re in a shady spot. I’ll see if I can get a decent photo of them and put them on your fb page 🙂
