October CMMC Close-up

For Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) this week a close-up or macro is required. Do visit Cee’s blog for more photos and links to the other participants.

I took a photo of Michaelmas daisies in September and cropped it. Several insects are visible in the cropped version. Michaelmas is the time around St Michael and All Angels (29th September). These flowers started blooming in July, but are still flowering in October.

September CMMC Autumn

This week Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) is for autumn or spring (presumably for participants in the Southern Hemisphere). Do visit Cee’s blog for more photos and links to other participants’ blogs.

So far the autumn here has been relatively mild and sunnier than usual. The leaves on the trees are only just beginning to change colour. A landscape would not look particularly autumnal. I have chosen a photo with a leaf, which has changed colour. It is cow parsley at the side of a country lane. Other leaves around it are green.

September CMMC letter O in the middle of the word

For Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) this week a photo of something with O in the middle of the word is required. Flowers are allowed. I have chosen a photo of purple loosestrife, which was taller than my 5 foot nothing! It is still flowering, but this photo was taken a week ago.
