Back in April, I joined the My Name is Not Bob Platform Building Challenge. The challenge gave birth to a friendly writing community, thanks to the hard work of some talented and dedicated writers - both poets and prose, alike. Over the weekend, a couple of the members--Veronica Roth, Rebecca Barray and Gerry Wilson--clued me in to the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. While I may not participate every week, it sounded like a lot of fun, so I decided to give it a try for today's post. This may be a great way to keep my blogging schedule through Camp NaNoWriMo, too!
Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple
If you look carefully at the bottom middle, you can see a bee gathering nectar. I got down on my hands and knees to get the camera close enough to show the differentiation of the flowers, and the bees showed up just in time to get their picture taken, too.
Some call the flower a native wildflower, others might call it a weed, but I love them, no matter what they're called. They bloom throughout the summer (if we don't mow them off), and are a beautiful splash of color to the otherwise dusty yellow of the dried prairie grasses.
On a sad note, last Friday was the final post for the Life List Club Blog. I will be keeping my Life List, although it shall return to the boring name of "Goals." I also will be re-running some of my posts from the LLC Blog, to help with the stress of Nano, so if you recognize a post, that's probably where it came from.
Have a great week, and we'll see you on Friday!
