5 in 5 - MELANIE - July 2014

Melanie is my friend who lives in Australia and she loves photography. Every month Melanie has taken part in this monthly neme and we managed to find a way round her not having a blog by posting here. I love that we have found a way for her to take part!  When I began this photo challenge last July I did not anticipate that this partnership would develop. It was not planned but I am SO glad that it happened because it has added something unexpected. I am so excited each month when I open Melanie's email with her monthly photos so once again Melanie, a big thank you, and over to you:

I’ve just returned from a three week holiday and while we have been away there was lots of rain which could account for why the garden is so alive.  I thought it would be appropriate to mark the start of another year of 5 in 5 by taking photos in our garden which is where my first 5 in 5 began July last year. My photo on the top LHS is of marigolds which now seem to be overrunning the garden but I love them so colourful and weeds are no competition for them.  The top RHS photo is of the broccoli which has changed from a seedling to a broccoli head in the time we have been away. The bottom LHS photo is of our fish pond.  I love the way the palm tree is reflected in the water and the water level is a good indication of the amount of rain that fell.  The photo in the middle at the bottom shows off our new gates.  My husband has spent the weekend making them in the hope that they will keep the chickens out of the veg plot.  Then my final photo on the bottom RHS show a group of narcissus.  It is winter here in Adelaide but these flowers seem to have been tricked into thinking it is spring. 

As always Melanie's photos reached me on the 5th even though she'd been away travelling for most of the month. I wondered if her photos would be taken on a different continent - but Spring in Winter is good to me!

If this has inspired you to take part in this challenge you have until 25th before the link closes. It's great fun and this post should answer any questions or give any other information that you need.

Thank you to Melanie and everyone else who has joined in or left comments. Links for this months posts are here and hopefully I'll be back with more photos from Melanie and myself next month. I hope you will join me!

This month is an anniversary - one year since the first '5 in 5' post.  There has been a lot going on here and no time to plan but I will be back with an idea to celebrate.....!
