Just checked out the previous challenges, to get an idea. I love how all the painting s are different, and how you can change or add or take away to make it your own. This will be my first challenge, and I can hardly wait to get started.

Thanks Linda! Love getting that extra info!

By the way, when you are looking at your photo you should see an "Options" button in the top right hands area of the screen. If you choose that drop down menu their are options for Editing your information on the photo...

I managed to load 3 photos and the comment that they were for the summer challenge- only later remembered Karen wanted comments on what we felt about the photos etc.

I was on my way to  spend a few days in a caravan in Dorset.  I stopped in a car park in BLANFORD FORUM to go to the loo and stretch my legs.  I went for a stroll and below the car park was a big area - laid out as a 'park' for people to enjoy.  There were quite a few people wandering around or having picnics, everywhere  the grass and trees were lush and seemed 'rooted' there- this is an ancient river crossing.    Running through this space was a gentle, wide, softly flowing river, the plants at it's side or within it looked like they'd been there a thousand years. So peaceful.  Just watching the river go on it's way, you forget your everyday worries and sense the timeless determination of nature to survive., whatever.
