Arrow Plant Parade Hosting Schedule, 2018 (2019 added!)

Below is our Hosting Schedule for the 2018 Plant Parade challenges.

If you would like to host a month please choose a vacant slot and we will add your name.

Themes and topics are chosen by the host and must be anything to do with plant life .... from seed to fruition!!
Any references you use should be credited to the photographer and, if possible, linked to higher resolution images for closer study ... this is easily achieved with the RIL here (please say if you have difficulties making links).

Some suggestions for themes for your hosting are listed below .... and if anyone has further ideas, please let me know and I'll add them to the list.

THEMES

Plants with pollinators ................ Feb 2018 - Tuscanny

Vegetables and fruit - if they fit the Host's Theme....August 2018 Red Vegetables

So glad I looked at this just now as I'd signed up for March 2018 but didn't get any confirmation.

Re: Plant Parade Hosting Schedule, 2018

I'm happy to step back.

Re: Plant Parade Hosting Schedule, 2018

Thank you, and welcome, Victoria!

First, please join us each month by creating art based on the theme of the current month's challenge .... see our Plant Parade for April, near the top of the page.
Then think of your theme ... see the first post of this thread.

If you still would like to host at the end of this month, I'll gladly add you to the list for August!

I always lurk your forum, Charlie's Mum. And have been doing it for a moment

I just don't feel to sure of myself to accept the chalenges.
But I am working on that, and will dare post some quick sketches.
