A-Z Challenge 2016 - Theme Reveal



I've been taking some photos today that are connected with my theme this year.


This flower could appear under 'A' or 'W'
This under 'L' or 'C' if it appears at all
This one looks rather lonely, but you would hardly call it shrinking.

When it appears under 'D' or 'V'

If you haven't guessed by now, my theme is wild flowers. Most of us will be aware of the flowers that grow in our gardens but what surprises me is how few of the wild flowers that I know.

I pass them every day but rarely look at them. Well this year will be different - even if many of them may fall under the letter 'X' for unknown.

This is my sixth year entering the challenge. I look forward to meeting old friends and making new contacts - one of the joys of taking part.

I love wildflowers. Super topic! We have an early spring and volunteer violets are blooming their hearts out by my kitchen window. Cheers.

Yours is the second flower theme. I love these themes because I love flowers even though I do not have a green thumb and they perish under my care.

I think wildflowers will be a great topic Bob. I sure enjoyed the butterflies last year. I first met you because of the castles which both you and Hilary chose to do one year.

This should be the first blog I come to every morning. Love your theme, it's so perfect for the Spring.! I have some flowers in mine AZ but they will be of the domestic kind mostly. Good luck with the challenge!

I see we have much in common with our love of wildflowers...one big difference...I am from Texas, the land of the state wildflower the Bluebonnet. I look forward to following your wildflower posts for AtoZ and learning about UK wildflowers.
