May Photo Challenge


May is the month of green and growing things, of life fully bloomed and the promise of the summer. It’s the month when gardens start growing like crazy and the beginning of weekly lawn care. I love May.

Here at Middle Places during the month of May we’re going to be exploring the topic of growing. I’ve been peeking ahead at some of the blog posts scheduled during the month and you’re not going to want to miss any of them!

So grab your phone or your camera and let’s document a month of growing together … both the growing of yourself and the growing of the world around you.

Then save the photo below or sign up for the Members’ Resource library to nab the photo perfectly sized to use as a lockscreen on your phone for a reminder.
