Hive Garden Challenge: Hive Prizes for Great Garden Posts! CLOSED

It's the Garden Journal Challenge time again, bang on May 1st. In the north, this would be Beltane:

Beltane is a Pagan holiday, and one of the eight Sabbats. It falls about halfway between the spring equinox (Ostara) and the coming summer solstice, Litha. The holiday celebrates spring at its peak, and the coming summer. Beltane also sometimes goes by the name May Day. This holiday is associated very strongly with fertility for pagans.

What better way to think about fertility than to get in our gardens - the seeds bursting, the fruit forming. Gone are the long winter days and the earth bursts into life. In the southern hemisphere, we're heading into winter, but nothing is ever truly dormant. We have many trees that still grow all winter and even many flowers on the natives. And of course, underneath the soil, bacteria and fungi do their work.

I missed doing the #gardenjournal challenge but @minismallholding did a wonderful job. We both adore supporting gardeners on the Hive blockchain as best as we can and love the garden community so much!

Guidelines for the Challenge

  • Use the #gardenjournal tag as your first tag. I'll be checking that above all else, so no need to drop your post link below.
  • Please engage with others
  • Try not to post lots of variations of the one plant - it's hard to scroll through endless similiar photos! Be selective with what you choose.
  • You are welcome to do more than one post, particularly if you have a large garden with many things going on.
  • Reblogging is appreciated!

Prizes

VEGETABLE GARDEN PRIZE - 10 HIVE, to be distributed amongst the best posts depending on entries.

PASSION GARDEN PRIZE - 5 HIVE, to be awarded to the most passionate gardener of the week.

Selfie Prize Go in the draw to win 2 HIVE for the best garden selfie!

Tagging below some past entrants - if you'd like to be alerted every month let me know in the comments and I'll add your name next month.

Wow! It has already been a month?! Little has changed in my garden. That's a lie. I've been doing a lot of work and things are starting to wake up! I'll try to be creative with a selfie, too. Though usually you seem to love it without me trying very hard! I guess that means I should just do what comes naturally. I wish I had more space to cultivate!

Guerilla gardening?

Means gardening where you shouldn't be allowed. Like planting flower seeds in wastelands. Or stealth vege gardens in public places

Oh, time flies, it is now May, 30 more days and we are again halfway through the year. Which also makes me excited for this May Garden Journal. I am looking forward to the entries. Have a nice day ahead.

I am making time this month to join! I got to be the mystery reader for my niece's kindergarten class on Friday and my sister just so happened to pick out a book with characters named Parsley, Basil and Thyme for me to read to them--perfect! So of course the poor little dears had to listen to me talk for a minute about herbs, haha.

Hope you got lots of responses, I'm busy in the garden right now, but I'll catch up with the posts a bit at a time - it's always inspiring to see other gardeners.

It would be really helpful for the feeble weaklings like me if you would add a specific deadline in the post or use the countdown feature for these posts. It helps me focus 😎.

Hope all is well in your world 😍.

I'll add a countdown next time... I tend to give myself a few days to wrap up so I don't mind late entries.
