For the May Challenge it's all about Flowers!  There are 4 themes and you have all month to do them, in whatever order you choose.  You can use a different Dal or Byul for each theme if you so desire.  You'll get one entry for each one you complete.  At the end of the month, I'll put all the entries in a hat and draw names 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice.  

1. Make or put together from existing clothing pieces, a flower themed outfit and take a photo of your Dal/Byul modeling her flower outfit.

2. Take a photo of your Dal/Byul with real, live flowers.

3. Create a Poem, Limerick, Haiku, or Song about flowers.  A bonus entry for taking a photo of your Dal/Byul that illustrates or compliments it in some way.

4. Draw/Paint/make a collage/or otherwise make a flower and take a photo of your Dal/Byul with it.

Goodies up for grabs:

A minimum of 1 photo each for #1, #2, and #4.  For #3, a photo is an optional, extra entry, to go with your writing or it could be incorporated into a photo.  You can certainly post additional photos if you want to, but no extra entries for those. Razz

#4 Make a flower

May Challenge - April Showers Bring May Flowers 49871987051_cc61acf251
It amuses me greatly that I can still remember how to make the origami tulips I learned ages ago in ... middle school?  I can't even remember.


#2  Real flowers

I love your origami tulips, Alliecat. Origami is part of my cultural heritage, but it's not one of my skills.


What kind of flowers are those? Your blossoming dals are cute, btw.

It's a forsythia bush. Common "spring" shrub here, & one of the first things to wake up in the "spring" (such as it is). (Insert long rant about how everywhere gets spring before we do!)

#1:  Flower Themed Outfit
Here's Serina the Loa in a variety of floral pieces plucked from the Dals' collective wardrobe.  I guess they've acquired a lot of flower print clothing items and accessories over the years.

#2:  Real, Live Flowers
Tuesday the Edge normally doesn't take part in monthly challenges, but maybe she's turning over a new leaf; or maybe she just didn't have anything better to do while we're all staying at home.  We don't have a backyard, just a lanai.  And I have a few containers in which I'm growing herbs and flowers.  This particular flower is impatiens, I think.

#4:  Make a Flower
This is my daughter's Dal, Emi the Hoho.  She's posing with the tissue paper & twist-tie flower that I made.  I only had red tissue paper, though I could have sworn I had a whole variety pack of pastel colors.  I seriously do not know what happened to it.  Sad

Challenge #3 seems to be harder for me.  I will try to come up with something, though.

I was hoping to see some flower layers of clothing! It's funny to see you growing Impatiens because they're a very common annual here in Ohio and she looks adorable with them. Nice job on the tissue flower, too.

I have to say it's really nice seeing flowers when it has snowed a couple of times in the last few days. And today we set the record for the latest date in May that it has ever snowed here. Crying or Very sad

I was amused by the impatiens in Hawaii too.  The twist-tie flower is cool.  Looks like a carnation.

#3 Poem, haiku etc...

I google-mapped the address on Samantha's dress, and it really is the headquarters of the fabric manufacturer in Honolulu. A cute and clever way to promote themselves.
It hit 29C in the sun today and I got out my SHORTS. About ******* time!!!
