The Changing Seasons: June

While May was a difficult month to sum up in an image, the same couldn’t be said for June.

This month the rain has arrived, and with it colder temperatures, high winds and — in the last few days — the first magnolia flower.

So far, there is only one. Hundreds of tiny furry buds, but only has burst forth. I captured this yesterday between rain showers.

The Changing Seasons is a monthly challenge hosted by Cardinal Guzman. Please visit to see the Cardinal’s month, and find links to other participants.

There are two versions of the challenge:

Version 1 (The Changing Seasons V1):

Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
Each month, post 5-20 photos in a gallery.
Don’t use photos from your archive. Only new shots.

Version 2 (The Changing Seasons V2):

Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
Each month, post one photo (recipe, painting, drawing, whatever) that represents your interpretation of the month.
Don’t use archive stuff. Only new material!

    • Thanks Meg. Magnolias are fascinating; so short-lived and then producing masses of “organic matter” to renew the soil around them. I love the blooms, but am really not crazy about all the dead leaves and petals that turn to sludge around the tree. Useful I know, but a but icky to walk in.

    • It hasn’t been quite cold enough for a frost, although we’re apparently getting some wild weather this weekend. So far, there have been no more flowers, but lots of buds. Fingers crossed they will survive the weekend. 🙂
