I have just returned home from the Shetland Islands and while there I stayed in the lighthouse on Bressay.  On my first morning I woke up and admired these flowers growing on the wall. 

And when I raised the camera you could see a scattering of snow that had fallen overnight.  Luckily it was our first and last but I was undeterred because I had gone prepared for all weathers! 

Today I am joining in with Helena's Photo Pairs.  I often take photos with this in mind but then I don't get round to posting them, which is a bit daft!   I hope to do better in future.

5 in 5 - MELANIE - May 2015

 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 so once again Melanie, over to you:
Hi from a wet Adelaide.  Yes more rain this week and the gardens are loving it.  I had planned on a trip into the city for my May 5 in 5 but changed my mind at the last minute. The day was wet and cold.  I was round a friend’s house and always have the same feeling when there and I look out on her court yard garden.  It is like an oasis.  My friend and her husband moved from her family home of 50+ years a couple of years ago leaving behind an incredible garden.  A garden which reflected a lifetime of love.  With a smaller home and just a court yard out the back I had thought that the garden would be greatly missed.  Not so the court yard has been brought to life with splashes of colour, lots of green and is a joy to see and be in.  Hopefully my photos as I walked around will give you some idea of it.
As always, a big thank you to Melanie for sending these photos. I love the different sky and it proves we only need to look around (or UP!) to appreciate what is already there.
So if this has inspired you to pick up your camera and take part in this challenge you have until 25th before this months link closes.
It's great fun and this post should answer any questions or give other information that you need.
Links for this months post are here and hopefully I'll be back with more photos from Melanie and myself next month. I hope you will join us and thanks for popping by!
