I just learned of this challenge from the blog My Life Lived Full. I’ve debated whether a “changing season” challenge is something I should undertake. Living in Texas several months go by when there seems to be little change in the landscape.
Before I moved to Texas I was told…”The difference between Winter and Summer in Texas is: in the Winter the trees are bare, the grass is brown and the skies are blue. In the Summer the trees have leaves, the grass is brown and the sky is blue!” This explanation has proven to be true. However, there are some differences in the flower beds…so that’s where I’ve decided to focus.
When I first moved to Texas, 16 years ago, an elderly neighbor told me to cut my rose bushes back in February. I have always followed her advice and no matter how far back I cut them they always come back in a grand and beautiful way! So here it is February, the rose bushes are cut back, and I have chosen to share photos of my flower beds for this season changing challenge.

“The rules were simple and I’m very glad that a lot of you decided to join the challenge. If you haven’t joined, but feel like joining, it’s not too late. The idea behind it is to get you to shoot often and continuously, to build up your portfolio, get some photographic experience and have fun. This way you’ll capture the changing seasons throughout the year.” Cardinal Guzman
