It is so lovely to have Thematic Photography back again.   I hope that everyone who normally contributes will post their own Growing Stuff so that we can see what is going on in different parts of the world.

If you would like to join in - there is no competition, just amateur photographers posting their shots according to the theme Carmi announces, then go to this link and join in!

I took my camera into our garden and around the Park at the back of our house, with the results you see here.   At this time of the year there is so much growing, including the weeds, that I was spoilt for choice!

The first little geranium is out

In the park, there are blue irises and lots ornamental trees.   And the lake, of course.

Still in the Park, a Sumac tree is coming into leaf.  (at least, I think its a Sumac!)

Just to prove I don't only grow flowers, lettuce seedlings in a Gro-Bag.   I also have peppers and french beans

And down the side of our house is where we put all the bits and pieces that might come in useful one day!   The Welsh Poppies have made this their own corner - I think its lovely!

Oh my gosh, you have made my day. First by your lovely growing photos, but I actually gave up checking for a theme from Carmi this week. Until, now I see you have posted! WooHOO! I'm doing the happy dance!

Thanks so much for your encouraging words, Gilly. You inspired me to get things going again, and I'm so glad I did. Your photos are gorgeous. Such diversity - at home and at the park. I think I may need to take a walkabout with my camera before this theme gives way to our next one. So much loveliness to capture!

Glad you gave me a nudge, not that I needed one. Yellow poppies get everywhere in our garden and have ousted the reds. Lovely collection of growing stuff with a professional look.

WooHoo! I posted to Carmi's new theme of "Dinner Tables" before you this time! Great news that TP is up and running again this week. Very fun!

Beautiful, how could it not be - love these pics of 'stuff that grows'. x
