Photo Challenge....

~reflection of a robin with a heart~

{ Note: I have not been able to get links to work on my posts for about 2 weeks. But, I do have Donna's link on my sidebar if anyone wants to see her photos and see the other participants links for their photos.}

Donna from Made in Heaven started this photo challenge.

Darah at Fickle Muse, hosted it this week picking the date and the theme.
This weeks challenge was liquid.

I was asked to host the next photo challenge. I have chosen the date June 6Th for the next challenge and the theme will be keys.

Anyone who wants to join us in this please leave a comment and I will put your link on for the challenge next week. { I will hopefully have it figured out why the link isn't working by then.}

I took these photos over the last month. With all the rain we have had I have tried to bring something positive out of it.

Nathalie Thompson said...

Thinking of you too. I've been busy with kids since school finished for the summer. I spend so little time on the computer these days. My blog doesn't get updated as often as I would like. Yours always has something interesting! The wading robin is perfect!

Nonnie said...

beautiful photos, them...i would love to participate...unless life happens :)...will check back,
hugs and prayers,

~Red Tin Heart~ said...

Nathalie, I remember how busy I was every Summer with the kids. It was my favorite time of the year though. We got up late and we watched movies and went to the park. We made crafts. I loved those days, but also was overwhelmed at times.
Thank you for the beautiful compliment.
I think of you so often.
Have a great weekend my friend.
xoxo Nita

~Red Tin Heart~ said...

Kimberly: I hope life gets out of the way so you can participate. I really love your photos.
I am glad you liked the photos..

Warren Adler said...

The photos are lovely, Nita. Wishing you all the best.

I am loving all your photography. You have such a knack of gathering the beauty in the simple things that many people are just not aware of.
