The View Challenge | March

What, already? Goodness.
It is time to start thinking about our views. Some of you have been taking your favourite view or one you love, some of you have taken one in your neighbourhood and some of you are taking one from the kitchen window or one from a window or door. I love that. I have heard tales of windows being washed, flower pots being weeded and I did go to the tip especially :) I had no idea it would inspire such activity lol. It's a good thing though right?

Here is a reminder of the Sara Coleridge poem.

The Months
January brings the snow,
makes our feet and fingers glow.

February brings the rain,
thaws the frozen lake again.

March brings breezes loud and shrill,
stirs the dancing daffodil.

April brings the primrose sweet,
scatters daisies at our feet.

May brings flocks of pretty lambs,
skipping by their fleecy dams.

June brings tulips, lilies, roses,
fills the children's hand with posies.

Hot July brings cooling showers,
apricots and gillyflowers.

August brings the sheaves of corn,
then the harvest home is borne.

Warm September brings the fruit,
sportsmen then begin to shoot.

Fresh October brings the pheasants,
then to gather nuts is pleasant.

Dull November brings the blast,
then the leaves are whirling fast.

Chill December brings the sleet,
blazing fire, and christmas treat.

So blog schedule for this week is;
Today: The challenge, a reminder to take your photo this week or this month, whichever you prefer.
Tuesday: The layouts and sketches.
Wednesday: Kitchen Window Photo Reminder and what I am doing with mine.
Friday: Neighbourhood Photo Reminder.
Sunday: Round-up.

I will add a linky to the post tomorrow as I have just realised the linky tool isn't working and it is silly o' clock so I will sort it out tomorrow.


  1. Welcome back Jenni hope you had a great weekend, missed you xxxxx

    1. Thank you ladies, I am still away we are lucky enough to do it for a week :)

  2. Lovely to see you again Jenni

  3. I'm not sure our daffodils will be out this week, probably later this month so I might have to do a one now and another later with the daffs.

    1. Janice do it whenever fits for you, it doesn't have to be this week just round about March :)
