You can join a meme (list) anytime and then link to your garden blog.
It's a lot of work to keep a MEME going and I admire these bloggers for doing so!
Always give credit back to the originator when you participate.
It's a way to thank them for their efforts.

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY WITH PHOTO LINKY by Alicia Same as the original Wordless Wednesday but originating from a fantastic photo blog. You will love Alicia's posts and her beautiful natural photos.

There's often over a 100 entries for this smaller version of WW. If you're overwhelmed by the other WW, try this one.

The group is a nice size for a beginner to join. Even mystery wildflowers are part of the fun and you don't have to be a botanist to join in.
MONTHLY GARDEN BOUQUET by Noelle in Arizona, USA (last week of each month). This one will take some creativity but it is SO MUCH FUN! Go out in your garden and make a bouquet. Take a photo in a nice location whether indoors or outside in the garden. Tell the names of the flowers and maybe a little about the idea behind your bouquet or why you like it. You DO NOT have to be an expert florist to join. I was so nervous the first time I posted, but everyone is so nice and you'll get some cheerful comments. Hey, who doesn't like getting flowers, right? :0)
